English football stakeholders are to hold further meeting this week, as talks are ongoing for football activities to resume in June.
Football activities in major European leagues have been inactive since early March due to the coronavirus crisis.
But the Italian league and German league are on course to restart next month, and English league sides are set to follow suit.
All 20 EPL clubs will hold their latest conference call on Friday but a resumption of domestic football will only take place with government approval.
The government's next review of current lockdown restrictions is due on May 7, as detailed planning continues under a 'Project Restart' programme.
Sport will only be allowed to resume when the government is satisfied its own measures are in place.
The EPL, along with other sports, will have to meet specific criteria before return. The criteria includes testing arrangements for participants, paid for by sporting authorities or clubs, and ensuring measures are in place to avoid fans gathering outside matches.
However, all matches would be played behind close door.
