Championship Clubs Prepare For Training Return As Bi Weekly Testing Begins

Championship Clubs Prepare For Training Return As Bi Weekly Testing Begins

Championship teams will start testing their players and staff for COVID-19 on Thursday and Friday this week, according to Sky Sports News.

With test results expected back within 24 hours, it is hoped that all 24 clubs will begin training from May 25th onwards.

It is believed that the names of all players and staff who will be tested from each club have been submitted to the EFL, although no results will be made public.

Testing will take place twice a week, in line with the Bundesliga and the Premier League, with the intention of getting the season back up and running next month.

The EFL have already stated that three clubs will be promoted to the top flight, come what may, although there has been no clarity in terms of relegation, which will affect Middlesbrough.

It is believed the Championship is intent on falling in line with whatever decision the Premier League makes. Phase One of training in the top-flight is already underway with approval for full contact training expected to be voted on next week.
