Officials of the Malian football Federation have resolved to resume the country’s domestic football championship in just under a month, kick442.com can report.
This is in the backdrop of a meeting to discuss the future of the country’s domestic football on Tuesday, June 23.
According to the recent decision from the country’s technical institution in-charge of football, July 10 is ideal for the restart of the Orange Ligue 1 under strict health guidelines.
Before the break in the domestic championship in March, Djoliba and Stade Malian led Group A and B of the 24 Clubs competition respectively.
21 of the 24 match days had been observed for some Clubs with the relegation and title playoffs within touching distance.
The decision to resume is opposed by some Clubs including Djoliba of Mali but a majority of the Football-loving people of Mali want a resumption in their championship.
Besides the resistance from some Clubs, there is also the issue of availability of football facilities including Stadias.
The country is currently without a minister in the Sports Ministry which is the institution with the powers to authorize the use of national Stadias mostly used for the competition.
Stakeholders have taken an appointment for July while hoping Femafoot and its associates puts all together for resumption as planned.
A handful of Clubs are back in training, though Djoliba reported a Corona Virus positive case last week.
As at June 25, Mali had reported 2005 CoronaVirus positive cases of which 1354 have recovered, and persons 112 died.
