Norwich City will resume their Premier League campaign next month, it's been announced.

The league will restart with two midweek fixtures on June 17 when Aston Villa take on Sheffield United and Manchester City face Arsenal.

The Canaries will then play their first match back on the weekend of 19-21 June.

Every club will have played 29 games once the rearranged Aston Villa vs Sheffield United and Manchester City vs Arsenal fixtures have been completed.

The decision to restart the season was agreed by all 20 Premier League clubs at a meeting on Thursday.

The Premier League have stressed that the proposed start date of June 17 is only provisional though at this stage and will only be officially confirmed when all safety requirements have been met.

Norwich's last game was a 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United on March 7, and the club will be bottom of the league and six points adrift of safety when the action gets underway again.

The June 17 restart date will mark exactly 100 days since the last Premier League game on March 9, when Leicester City thrashed Aston Villa 4-0.

Premier League players returned to contact training this week, and they are now expected to step up their return to normal training over the next three weeks.

The Premier League have also confirmed that all 92 remaining matches will be shown live on TV, including 3pm kick-offs on Saturday afternoons, due to the fact that games will be played behind closed doors.

The matches will be shown on BBC, Sky, Amazon Prime and BT Sport.

The league hasn't clarified yet whether fixtures will take place at home stadiums or neutral grounds.

"Today we have provisionally agreed to resume the Premier League on Wednesday 17 June," Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said.

"But this date cannot be confirmed until we have met all the safety requirements needed, as the health and welfare of all participants and supporters is our priority.

"Sadly, matches will have to take place without fans in stadiums, so we are pleased to have come up with a positive solution for supporters to be able to watch all the remaining 92 matches.

"The Premier League and our clubs are proud to have incredibly passionate and loyal supporters. It is important to ensure as many people as possible can watch the matches at home."
