Senegal ends season due to COVID-19 pandemic


The Senegalese Football Federation (FSF) Executive Committee has made a decision to end all its competitions despite earlier hoping to conclude the remaining rounds of matches in November.

The Executive Committee announced it had decided to approve the medical proposal put forward by the Federation’s Medical Committee to conclude the 2019/20 season.

At the same time, the Committee unanimously decided in the meeting held at its headquarters not to declare champions nor relegate or promote teams at all levels due to the insufficient ratio of matches played.

However, the Federation made a decision to name Teungueth FC and Jaraaf FC as representatives in next season’s Total CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup as they were the two best ranked teams when the season was halted.

Teungueth led the standings after 13 rounds of matches with 33 points, 12 ahead of second placed Jaraaf.

The Executive has also announced that the new season will commence on October 31.
