Equatorial Guinea Annuls 2019/20 League Season Due To COVID-19
Equatorial Guinea has become the latest Football Association to announce the annulment of all its leagues across the country due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
An Executive Committee meeting held on Monday afternoon in Malabo made the decision as a further follow up to an earlier decision to suspend all football activities due to government restrictions in efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
“Due to the restrictions on movement and pubic gatherings, the Executive has deemed it necessary and as a precaution to declare the season void for all competitions run by FEGUIFUT,” a statement signed by Gustavo Ndong Edu Akumu, the FEGUIFUT president stated.
It added; “The decision has been made for the sake of the safety of players, staff, officials and fans due to the evolution of the pandemic in the country. The Executive Committee has studied all practical and possible health prevention options.”
At the same time, FEGUIFUT has announced there will be no relegation or promotion for this season.
