After being suspended for two months the Vodacom Premier League is set to return on June 1st, 2020 following the President’s statement earlier this week.
President Magufuli says football is the best thing that unites nations and people from various background and it is entertainment for most of the Tanzanian citizens.
Thus he mentioned the return of the Premier League season 2019/20. The main reason for the return of the season is because of the low number of Coronavirus statistics in Tanzania.
“I know everyone here loves football, even the members of parliament love football. According to the pandemic statistics, I don’t think there is any player who got the virus or sick so I think it is a wise thing to do.
“Sports do help in healing a lot of social unrests and even this disease, I have decided to announce the return of the league on June first this year.
President Magufuli says the arrangements on how the league will resume and players, as well as fans will be arranged and announced by Tanzania Football Federation soon.
