Both the SPFL and SFA are set to make an ambitious pitch to the Scottish government about restarting football.
The game has been shelved since March when the shut down came into play. Since then, we’ve had a lot of turmoil before acceptance that the current season could not be played.
Celtic were crowned champions and Hearts relegated pending reconstruction talks.
With the clubs still talking about how next season will look, BBC reporter Chris McLaughlin says the SPFL and SFA will ask for the game to restart up here on schedule for next season.
This means, if the Scottish government were to give the go ahead — we’d be kicking off the new season in August.
SPFL/SFA to ask government for permission to start the new 2020/2021 season as scheduled on August 1st. Meeting with sports minister tomorrow. More coming up shortly on @BBCScotNine

With the EPL starting back their season in June along with many other countries, the SPFL must believe they have a good chance of getting the green light.
If so, Celtic would start their ten in a row tilt in August most likely behind closed doors.
