The Tunisian Football Federation (FTF) has announced return-to-play guidelines that will see league matches resume in August.
The federation at the same time has cancelled Ligue 2 with the exception of teams in contention of promotions and those in relegation playoffs. FTF announced playoff tournaments to determine relegation to Ligue 3 and promotion to Ligue 2.
“Our objective is to apply a strategy that ensures both return of practice and football season, as well as the health and safety of all parties involved in the process during the COVID-19 crisis,” the FTF said in a statement.
For Ligue 1, FTF announced plans that include resuming individual training sessions as of June 4th and group sessions the following ten to 15 days.
They have also set strict guidelines including practice sessions and games taking place behind closed doors. Thorough health precautions are required as well, such as proper sterilization of equipment, hands, and keeping access to the stadium to the bare minimum will be required.
The schedule set out by FTF will see games returning in August 2020 and the new 2020/2021 season kick-off in late October 2020.
