Ethiopia is the latest African country to call off their football season as coronavirus pandemic continues to have a huge impact on the continent.
The East African nation joins Mauritius, Kenya, Angola, Guinea and Nigeria in the growing list of countries deciding to either end or voids their campaigns.
The Ethiopian FA released a statement on Tuesday confirming the move following a meeting of key stakeholders in the country.
“Considering the country is under a state of emergency and the unpredictability of the coronavirus outbreak, we have decided to cancel this year’s all-league games,” read a statement in part.
The Ethiopian league has therefore been declared null and void with no promotions or relegations of teams
By the time of suspension, Fasil Kenema was top of the league with 30 points from 17 matches, with
last season’s league winners Mekele 70 Enderta second, a point behind Fasil.
