The outbreak of the CoronaVirus pandemic early this year, football leagues in the world had to take a precautionary pause until further notice.

As a result, some leagues in the world went ahead to cancel their leagues and declare the top teams winners while some sought measures to see if their leagues could resume.

National football federations in Africa like those of Tanzania, Tunisia and Burundi in this vein are working tirelessly for resumption of their leagues likely in the month of June.

Tunisia announced a couple of days ago that there are guidelines on ground to resume the league between 10th – 17th of June, 2020.

Meanwhile, Tanzania Premier League is also set to be back on the field in June behind closed doors according to league authorities.

Burundi Ligue 1 will be back on the field on the 1st week of June.

The Burundi Ligue had remained the only African league that was active in the peak moment of the Coronavirus pandemic on the continent. It only halted in April.

It will be remembered that the Confederation of African Football, CAF has asked league management bodies to communicate on the future of their championship on or before May 5.
