Portugal to Resume Primeira Liga on June 4 amidst Coronavirus Spread


Liga Portugal has confirmed the Primeira Liga will return to play on June 4.

Their statement says: “Different entities have conducted successive alignment meetings over the past few days so that the recovery can take place safely and with all the protection measures that mitigate the risks of returning to the activity.”

Last month’s country’s prime minister, Antonio Costa, gave the league the go-ahead to restart behind closed doors from May 30 and the league has now announced it would continue playing only a few days late.

The 25th round of fixtures will take place from June 4, Liga Portugal announced in a statement. They added:

“To ensure that the stadiums are strictly inspected and that medical tests are carried out on all professionals involved in the games and their organisation, the date for the first game of the 25th round of the Liga NOS is scheduled for June 4, 2020.”

Portugal’s top flight since March 12 was on pause owing to the coronavirus pandemic. After Portugal, Spain’s La Liga is aiming to return from their suspension on June 12.
