In line with this, the Qatar Football Association indicated that the competitions will be completed between “July 24 to August 26 next.”

He stressed that determining the return comes after “holding consultations with officials in the Ministry of Health in order to preserve the safety of all those involved in the matches, including players, technical and administrative equipment and referees.”

While the authorities have not formally announced whether the fans will be allowed to attend the matches, it is expected that this will be the approved measure, at least in the first period, as in the various international championships that complete their competitions after the interruption period due to “Coffed 19”.
