Leeds United fans have been able to pause their Sky Sports subscription since football ground to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic in March.
It has been almost three months since the Whites last kicked a ball when they beat Huddersfield 2-0 at Elland Road on March 7.
However it seems that Sky have dropped a major hint that English football will return to our football screens in the middle of June.
As reported by WalesOnline, a Sky Community Manager wrote a statement to say: “We’re in the process of un-pausing Sky Sports as we see more live sport return during June.
“Some of you will have noticed that we’ll be restarting subscriptions from the 19th of June and we’ll be making more information available shortly.”
June 19 is a very specific date and funnily enough, it is a day before the Championship season is expected to resume, according to BBC Sport journalist Simon Stone.
Today's PL decision positive for Championship. They intend to test this week and start training on Monday. They are now working to a restart date of 20 June. Idea is to play 5 consecutive weekends + 4 midweeks in between, so last league games 18/19 July, followed by play-offs.

With the amount of money that Sky Sports pay the Premier League and EFL, we would expect they’re one of the first companies to know about when football is going to return.
And why would they say a date for people to unpause their subscriptions when there wouldn’t be any live football for them to watch?
Leeds United fans say a lot about Sky Sports but surely it is no coincidence that June 20 is the reported restart date and the day before, fans can start paying to watch football again.
