The government of Tanzania has given Tanzania mainland football league to resume from June 1, 2020.
Tanzania Minister of Information, Culture, Arts and Sports Harrison Mwakyembe confirmed that they will allow few fans as they move to stop Covid19 pandemic.
“Each team will be allowed to have a specific number of fans not exceeding 20 people, who will be seated in a way to respect social distance but they will all be tested before accessing into the venues,” Mwakyembe said, as quoted by Daily News.
Mwakyembe also allowed the clubs to start training but must observe social distancing.
He revealed that each team’s players, technical bench staff will be thoroughly tested prior to getting inside the playing venues.
Restrictions against spitting on the pitch, goal celebrations and handshakes are expected to be effected.
The league games will be played only in Dar es Salaam and Mwanza to “cut down travelling costs for the teams.”
Simba SC who have played 28 games, lead the 20-team league with 71 points. Azam FC (54) and Young Africans (51) follow in second and third respectively.
