A Pilot event is a program by the UK which allows a limited number of fans into stadiums with social distancing observed.
This could begin as early as October.
Premier League clubs are already talking with fans to know their opinion on a return to stadiums.
The arrival and exit of fans is a big issue as clubs look to maintain safety measures for games.
Premier League Clubs are also exploring the option of issuing standard arrival and departure times for fans during the first phase of them being allowed back into stadiums.
Other sports in the UK to happen behind closed doors include Cricket matches between England and West Indies, horse racing, and snooker tournaments at Milton Keynes.
