u2460 Mauritius leads 10 African countries to cancel
This is only an example, of course, but once it appears many times or repeatedly, the League seems to have lost its original meaning. Therefore, in the case of various uncertain factors, it seems that it is a wise choice to terminate the league. From the current global situation, Africas football industry may have low efficiency and management level. Of course, whats more important is that the health conditions, such as epidemic prevention and anti epidemic, are not high or good, so it is currently the region with the most League cancellations. According to statistics, as of June 20, 10 African countries and regions have announced the cancellation of their national or regional leagues.
Mauritius is the first country in the world to announce the cancellation of this seasons League. As early as April 7 this year, the Mauritius Football Association announced the cancellation of all football matches of this season (2019-2020 season). Of course, the highest level of the Premier League will have no champions, no promotion. Of course, Mauritius announced the cancellation of this seasons League so early, which is said to be related to the serious domestic epidemic. It has been reported that in eastern Africa, Mauritius is the country with the deepest virus infection and the most affected.
If someone takes the lead, someone will follow. After the Mauritius Football Association decided to cancel the league, three other African countries immediately followed. The Portuguese speaking Football Association of Angola immediately announced the cancellation of the league, and there was no championship and no promotion. After that, the Guinean Football Association adopted the same approach as Mauritius, Angola and other football associations. After that, the Kenya Football Association announced the cancellation of the league with the same reason and reason, and there was no championship and no promotion. By the middle of April, the Equatorial Guinea Football Association also announced the cancellation of the league, and there was no championship or promotion. However, when the Guinean Football Association announced the cancellation of the league, it made a special explanation for the number of participants in the next years African Club Champions League and the African Football Association Cup. The League results of the previous season, 2018-19, were taken as the basis.
When Congo Football Association announced the cancellation of this seasons League, it was different from the situation of some African countries which had previously cancelled the league. It directly declared otoho as the League champion, because there are four rounds left in the whole league, but the team led the table with 12 points advantage, but cancelled the promotion and demotion. Ethiopias Football Association announced the cancellation of this seasons League, but also decided not to send teams to next seasons African Club Champions League and non FIFA cup.
u2461 Cancellation of disputes in Europe and America directly leads to lawsuits
In contrast, because the domestic fans are not very concerned about the situation of African football, but more concerned about the European and American leagues, it is also the cancellation of the leagues. Perhaps the disputes caused by the cancellation of European and American countries make Chinese fans more interested, while African football has hardly caused any waves. Moreover, after many countries in Europe and the United States announced the cancellation of the league, their decision directly triggered lawsuits.
In the European mainland, Belgium is the first country to announce the cancellation of the 2019-20 season league, and also announced Bruges club as the League champion, which caused many dissatisfaction of Belgian domestic clubs and fans. Even UEFA has to say that it is possible to prohibit Belgian clubs from participating in next seasons European club games. When the Belgian League is suspended, Bruges is at the top of the table with 15 points, and the regular season will be over. According to the competition rules of the Belgian League, the top six teams in the table will participate in the playoffs. But before the playoffs, the Belgian Football Association announced the championship directly, which certainly caused dissatisfaction.
In the Netherlands, after the Prime Minister of the Netherlands announced that he was also affected by the epidemic and could not resume the football match before September, the Dutch football association decided to cancel this seasons League. Although it did not determine the league title, it announced that the first Ajax team would get the only automatic promotion place in the European Champions League next season. This caused the strong dissatisfaction of AZ Alkmaar, the second ranked team, because there are still nine games left in the whole league, AJAX has exactly the same points with Alkmaar, just because of the difference of net winning goal, so Ajax can directly promote, Alkmaar club should be reluctant. Therefore, the latter wrote to UEFA, asking for the resolution of the Dutch football association to be overturned.
u2462 There are different reasons for cancellation in three Asian countries
By contrast, there are not many countries that have announced the cancellation of the league in Asia. Lebanon is the first country to announce the cancellation, followed by Iraq and, most recently, the United Arab Emirates. All of these three countries are western Asian Arab countries. Of course, although one of the important reasons for cancellation is affected by the epidemic, the actual situation is different.
For another example, the normal Committee of the Iraqi Football Association announced on June 3 that all the leagues in Iraq in 2019-20 season will be cancelled, and all the matches before the outbreak will be cancelled. Meanwhile, the leagues in 2020-21 season will be fully launched on September 10. It was a decision made in the absence of an agreement with the club and with respect for the clubs views, he said. At present, the epidemic situation in Iraq is still severe, but the more important problem is probably that after all members of the Executive Committee of the Iraqi Football Association announced their collective resignation in January this year due to scandal, the whole Iraqi Football Association is in great confusion, and it is difficult for all parties to reach a consensus. Therefore, in the name of the epidemic, it was cancelled directly.
Next, will there be any cancellation of the national or regional leagues? At present, Im afraid no one can give a clear statement. After all, the epidemic is still an uncontrollable factor at this stage.
