It was confirmed by the EFL on Sunday evening that the Championship season will return in less than three weeks for Leeds United.

There were initial concerns over some fixtures, with the Whites still having to travel to Wales twice to face both Cardiff and Swansea in their final nine games.

BBC journalist Adam Pope shared on Monday morning that the Welsh government have confirmed that sports are ready to go behind-closed-doors.

Pope shared the news on his official Twitter account, confirming that Wales are in line with England to make a return to sports as easy as possible.

The initial concerns were that the English and Welsh governments were not aligned with their measures on the Coronavirus pandemic – something which could affect the remaining fixtures.

This latest update has shed light on that, with Marcelo Bielsa and the Whites now preparing for long trips down to the south coast of Wales.

There have been many arguments surrounding the possibility of clubs playing their remaining fixtures in neutral venues too.

Sky Sports claimed that the organisation and huge amounts of travelling required from teams would make it impractical and near-impossible to play at neutral venues.

Although the two trips to Wales require hours of travel, it won’t take as much preparation to complete those games at the Cardiff City Stadium and Liberty Stadium in the next couple of months.
