The Return of Football Season 2019/20 amid COVID-19

The football industry has faced substantial losses following the outbreak of coronavirus. Most of the leagues have resumed, but some are finalizing on the return preparations. The impact of COVID-19 saw many clubs reducing their expenditure by at least 30% to save employment.

There is evidence of how global clubs have continually played a vital role in supporting the needy during the pandemic. English Premier League alone has reached many vulnerable communities through food donations. EPL is expected to return on Wednesday, June 17 after a three-month shutdown. Liverpool takes the lead with 82 points in the EPL chart.

On the other news, the Spanish football’s top-flight La Liga resumed on June 8. Social distancing measures remain in place as various activities are in progress. FC Barcelona tops in the Spanish table, whereas, Real Madrid and Sevilla closely follow. The puzzle of Messi and Antoine Griezmann is still drawing lots of speculation, as the latter is slowly adapting to the new team.
