The country was the last to suspend soccer activities and have made official the day when teams will return to the pitch
Burundi Football Federation (BFF) has set May 21 as the date when football action will resume.
BFF was the last African federation to halt soccer activities due to the novel Covid-19 pandemic. The announcement means Burundi is the first East African country to have an official day when football matches will be allowed back.
Matches had been allowed to go on in the land-locked country with fans allowed too but after taking temperature tests and sanitizing their hands before every match outside the stadiums.
