The Chinese Super League (CSL) season could kick off in late June with the country’s football association preparing various plans to complete the campaign delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The league was scheduled to start on Feb. 22 but was pushed back because of the novel coronavirus outbreak, which has infected more than 82,000 people in China, killing 4,633. “Plan A is to finish the season with 30 rounds,” Chinese Football Association (CFA) President Chen Xuyuan said.
“We have a Plan B if the league were to kick off in late June and finish in December, and we have also designed Plan C for a later restart. (Text and photo courtesyDaily Trust)
