Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, countries have closed their borders and a lot of events have been put on hold, including football as the World Health Organization (WHO) continues to put in more effort to reduce the spread of the virus and as well find a vaccination.
Coronavirus pandemic has caused football to grind to a halt in most parts of the world, but it is still business elsewhere as some football leagues continue to play on, we take a look at these leagues;
BELARUS VYSSHAYA LEAGUE
The Belarus league remains the only top-flight professional football league in Europe not to have been suspended. The league which commenced just last week Thursday continues to play on despite the widespread of Coronavirus.
Despite recording 94 Coronavirus cases, the footballing authority in the country believes there’s no reason to suspend the league. This weekend will see Matchday 2 of the league played in front of fans, just as the opening round was a week ago.
BURUNDI PRIMUS LEAGUE
Football league in Burundi continues to play on despite the Coronavirus pandemic, it remains the only football league in Africa not to have been suspended.
The league this weekend enters gameweek 27, which means there will be only 3 more games to play for the season after this weekend’s fixture. Some cup games will also go on this weekend.
The country though is yet to announce a Coronavirus case.
NICARAGUA LIGA PRIMERA
Nicaragua’s Liga Primera remains the only Latin American league playing through the coronavirus pandemic as match week 12 fixtures will this weekend go on.
Despite the wild revelation made by Taufic Guarch, an attacker for Nicaraguan side Real Esteli that players play with fear, football matches will go on as scheduled.
The country as so far confirmed 2 coronavirus cases and 1 death.
There are also some friendly games that will be played across the weekend, but most of these teams are lower teams in their various countries.
I continue beseech all Football fans around the world to please follow all instructions from WHO as we try to get out of these tempestuous times safe and alive. Stay safe!!!
