Burundi league re-starts, Tanzania set for June 1 resumption

Burundi’S Primus Ligue has become the first African league to resume as the world of sports begin to slowly pick up the ruins from the suspensions caused by COVID-19 pandemic

The league restarted on Thursday with a match between Musongati and Athletico Olympic.

The match, staged at the Stade Ingoma in Gitaga ended 3-2 with full attendance including the president of the Burundi Football Federation. The victory saw Musongati move to 54 points, just one behind leaders Le Messager Ngozi.

The catch-up fixture now sees all teams on an equal number of matches – 27.

Football in Burundi was halted over a month ago with the country battling to control the spread of the virus but has now resumed for the final three rounds of the season.

This weekend, action will shift to the Burundian Cup fixtures. The competition is currently in the semi-final stage. The final is scheduled for the 13th of June. League matches will resume on the 30th of this month with the final round scheduled for June 28.

Meanwhile, in Tanzania, the Government has announced that sports activities in the country return on June 1. The Tanzanian League managers are thus preparing for resumption after it was suspended on March 17.

With 10 rounds of matches left, giants Simba SC was leading the Ligi Kuu Bara standings with 71 points, a healthy 17 ahead of second-placed Azam FC. Just six wins out of the remaining 10 matches will confirm them as champions.
