The English Premier League are expected to follow the EFL and re-start on June 6th if safe enough, MySportDab reports.
EFL Chief Rick Parry is working on a plan for clubs to return back to football in June with all matches played behind closed doors.
Parry sent a message to clubs last week indicating that the season could be completed within 56-days, with less effect on the next 2020-21 season.
Footbal across Europe remains suspended until further notice due to the COVID-19 crisis.
But clubs in the EFL are facing the threat of bankruptcy if the lockdown is on for much longer.
The EFL has provided emergency funds of £50m available to clubs during this crisis, and the Premier League has offered reserves clubs £125m.
The two leagues want to finish the current season and news of a restart date are expected to lead to the Premier League ahead of Friday’s next video conference call with the 20 clubs.
The EFL are also working towards an a short three week pre-season which starts on May 16, if the government confirms its safe enough by then.
MySportDab understands Football will not return until the worst of the coronavirus crisis is over in the UK.
There are nine more Match days of fixtures left in the Premier League season while Championship clubs also still have nine matches to play, but four clubs will still have to take part in the playoffs.
Many League One clubs have played 35 games and most League Two teams managed 36.
