The Championship re-start plans have been greeted with opposition, as QPR chief executive Lee Hoos saying his club are ‘vehemently opposed to this schedule’.

The EFL released a statement on Sunday night outlining a proposed return date of June 20, the same weekend as the Premier League, as club’s prepared for the second week of training.

Clubs are yet to receive the go-ahead for full contact training to resume, but now have a date of June 20 to work to for when the remaining nine games of the season could resume.

The number of positive COVID-19 across the 24 clubs has risen from three to 10 in the space of the first week of training, with players and members of staff undergoing twice-weekly testing.

QPR, 13th in the table with 50 points, say they aren’t alone in their criticism of the re-start plans, and revealed they were only made aware of the proposals 40 minutes before they were released to the world.

Hoos’ concerns centre around the turnaround of just three weeks from returning to light training, with social distancing in place, to the intensity of Championship matches and a packed fixture list.

The Rs CEO says he has voiced his concerns to the league, ones that are shared with other clubs in the division.

“I am absolutely stunned by this announcement, as is our Director of Football Les Ferdinand and our manager Mark Warburton,” he said in a statement on his club’s website.

“Incredibly, there has been absolutely no consultation with individual clubs nor with the Championship doctors' working group by the divisional representatives - or anyone else in the Football League – regarding this matter.

“On top of that, we were only made aware of the statement 40 minutes before it was made public.

“Having spoken with Les and Mark, they share my views. We are vehemently opposed to this schedule.

“The players haven’t even returned to full-contact training at this moment and yet they are now expected to be in a position to play at a competitive level in just three weeks’ time.

“I have made our feelings known to the EFL and, having spoken with a number of CEOs at other Championship clubs, I am not a lone voice on this matter.

“We are absolutely appalled.”
