The Tunisian football federation has announced the country’s football league will resume its season in August behind closed doors. Matches were suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Closed-door training will restart at the beginning of June, the Federation announced. It was initially hoped that Ligue 1 could be restarted in June, but the government rebuffed the FTF’s plan.
No further details were available on the schedule of matches or training, and the restart only relates to the top two tiers of the professional league.
The 2020-2021 Ligue I season is scheduled to begin in October.
Earlier in the week, the FTF in collaboration with the Tunisian health ministry published a strategy document on restarting football.
