Australia offer to host the remaining Premier League matches

The Premier League has planned “Project Restart” as an initiative to get the 2019-20 Premier League season back on track. It has been halted since March due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

An article on Onefootball claims that Perth are offering the Premier League a chance to end their season in Western Australia. Australia has seen less than 7,000 confirmed Coronavirus cases and 93 casualties, whereas more than 28,000 people have died in the UK.

Perth gives an advantage to the Premier League in terms of the COVID-19 outbreak. Perth has four major sporting venues that can be used — Optus Stadium (capacity 65,000), Perth Oval (20,500), cricket’s WACA (24,500) and Joondalup Arena (16,000).

English agent Williams is masterminding the astonishing alternative. Williams, who lives in the Western Australian capital, has received backing from the local Perth senator.

Williams said: “I have had discussions with contacts at Premier League clubs and they like the idea. I have also spoken with government officials and they are enthusiastic. We are speaking again this week.”

“Everybody is safe here. The government has lifted many restrictions. We are sitting round in groups of ten, we can walk around and the beaches are open. We have had four new cases in the last ten days.”

As reported by Fox Sports, Perth state senator Glenn Sterle added: “I’m watching what’s happening in England with a heavy heart. We want to help. We have almost no new cases. It would just be a case of some quarantine for our friends when they arrive and then we are up and running.”

“When Gary first mentioned it I thought it was a wonderful idea. I’m glad he is getting the same response from the people in the game he has called. This is the centre of the sporting universe in Australia. We have fresh air and good weather. It would be ideal.”

Williams further told ABC Grandstand on Sunday: “We’ve got the venues, we’ve got the weather and we are in control of the coronavirus at the moment. You would need four facilities and the timing is absolutely brilliant because we could kick off over here at 6 pm, 8 pm and 10 pm.”

“And 10 pm kick-off here would be 3 pm in the afternoon there and we’d also have coverage worldwide all through Asia and America. Timing-wise this is the ideal place and also health and safety-wise and facility wise, it’s the ideal place, Perth.”

“The players would have to be in isolation for two weeks [travelling to Australia from the UK]. After the two weeks, all the games would be televised with no crowds.”

“We’d be looking at Optus [Stadium], the WACA and probably [HBF] Arena. They could use local state league clubs to do the training.”
