American Samoa: 2020 football season set to begin in July

Football activities are slowly resuming in Oceania and it is not going to be different in American Samoa. According to Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) team trainings are allowed to resume in the country from June 15 on.

While football clubs can resume their activities in the upcoming week, the U-19 National Team must be called-up for trainings later this month as part of their preparation for OFC U-19 Championship that must be scheduled soon and the National Youth League is planned to begin in July.

The 2020 edition of FFAS Senior League – the top league from American Samoa – is likely to begin in August. Pago Youth is the currently local champions as they won the league last year but they withdrew from playing 2020 OFC Champions League. It is important to remember that American Samoa was affected by the measles outbreak that forced the 2019 FFAS Senior League to be called off.
