The Polish Football League will start on May 29 and end in July
After the coronavirus break, the Polish football league will start again on Friday, May 29. The management of the competition announced the schedule of the next two rounds after the local government allowed the resumption of matches at the end of April. The season, played without spectators, should end on the weekend of July 18 and 19.
Unlike other countries, players and members of implementation teams had to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine in Poland before returning to joint group training, and then successfully passed coronavirus testing. According to Krzysztof Pawlaczyk, a first league medical expert, only one of the total 800 tests was positive, and it was not a person who came into direct contact with the team.
"It shows that the isolation we have put in place and the day-to-day medical surveys are of profound importance. Clubs must strictly follow this procedure until the end of the season," Pawlaczyk told the competition website.
"The first stage is over. Now is the time for training and other strict adherence to the set recommendations so that we can continue the competition at the end of May," added the president of the highest competition, Marcin Animucki.
The Polish league table is led after 26 rounds by the Legia Warsaw with the Czech forward Tomáš Pekhart by eight points ahead of the second Piast Gliwice. In addition to the end of the basic part, the local competition, like the Czech league, also has an extension.
