Football competitions could resume in two months in Fiji

A light at the end of the tunnel has finally appeared for Fijian football lovers. It was reported that Fiji Football Association president Mohammed Yusuf stated that there is a possibility to resume local competitions by June.

The Prime Minister of Fiji Voreqe Bainimarama recently confirmed that all schools must be closed until June. Once the schools are cleared to reopen, the football activities will probably be cleared as well.

Yusuf also pointed that once the leagues are back, the National Team will also resume its activities – “We are hoping for the best, we hope that the competitions will start mid-June or early July if that happens then the national team will play in the World Cup qualifiers later in the year,” he said to FBC News.

Football activities in the country are suspended since March 20 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rewa is the current leader of 2020 Vodafone Premier League, the main football league in the country.
