The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) is closely monitoring South Korea’s K League which kicked-off again earlier this week.
Philippines.- The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) is closely monitoring South Korea’s K League to see whether safety protocols are sufficient to restart football.
The Philippines strict lockdown measures have prevented any sport, including the Philippines Football League, from continuing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
But the PFF is looking to see what does and doesn’t work in terms of safety with South Korea’s premier football division, the K League, which kicked off on Friday (May 8).
PFF President Mariano Araneta told Inquirer: “I think the case of K-League gives us hope. That’s why we really have to carefully study the safety measures they’ll be putting in place.
“When we’re confident enough that we have a solid and safe plan in place, that’s the time we can present it to the government to allow us to push through with the league.”
