Luton Town are set to resume their Championship campaign on June 20.

The league was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic but the EFL announced on Sunday night that an agreement has been reached to restart the season in June.

The EFL stressed the start date of June 20 is only provisional and is subject to "the strict proviso that all safety requirements and Government guidance is met."

Luton have nine games remaining to try to claw themselves out of the relegation zone.

In total, there are 108 Championship games still left to play this season and the EFL are hoping the campaign will finish with the play-off final "on or around July 30."

Discussions are also ongoing about plans to allow five substitutes to be used in the remaining fixtures, plus increasing matchday squads from 18 to 20 players.

Games would take place behind closed doors at home stadiums, providing clubs get permission from their local authorities to stage them.

The Championship is the second league in England to announce its intention to get going again after the Premier League recently revealed matches will restart on June 17.

"Following Saturday's announcement by the government to allow elite sporting events to return behind closed doors, the EFL has this weekend agreed to a provisional restart date of the weekend of 20 June 2020 for matches in the Sky Bet Championship," an EFL statement read.

"After discussing various approaches and the importance of completing the season in a similar timeline to that of the Premier League to avoid any potential issues with promoted and relegated clubs, the Sky Bet Championship season is set to conclude with the Championship play-off final on or around 30 July 2020."

EFL chair Rick Parry said all the remaining games would be shown either live on Sky Sports or via each club's iFollow streaming service.
