Belgium Will Have to Wait till July 31 to Resume Professional Sports


In Belgium, the ban on all amateur and professional sports activities until will be extended till at least July 31, Prime Minister Sophie Wilmes announced on Wednesday.

This decision practically means that the football league will not be able to continue, nor will the leagues in other sports.

The Belgian Football Federation, like the Netherlands and France, will temporarily end the championship. In the Netherlands, they have not declared a champion and in France it is PSG, while the Belgians will decide it on 15 May.

In Belgium, of the 11.5 million coronavirus population, 8300 people have died. It seems that the Government does not intend to specifically mitigate sport-related measures until mid-summer.

However, on Monday, industrial facilities and most stores began to operate as well as public transportation.
