J.LEAGUE held an extraordinary executive committee on 29th May and J.LEAGUE Chairman Mitsuru Murai spoke to the media, about the resumption/opening dates of the J.LEAGUE.
“Today, we decided on the schedule for the resumption/opening of the J.LEAGUE. We will resume the MEIJI YASUDA J2 LEAGUE and start the MEIJI YASUDA J3 LEAGUE on the weekend of 27 June, while the MEIJI YASUDA J1 LEAGUE will resume on 4 July.
The committee was held for an extended period of time, as I had all the executive committee members have their say about their thoughts and preparations done towards starting the league. With the dates confirmed, we are making a number of guidelines put in place. The point we stress is to ensure the safety and health of our players.
Starting in March making guidelines protecting our player’s fitness, checking their temperature, managing their daily activity logs, we are almost at the point to be ready for the case to hold matches without spectators. In addition, we plan to give PCR tests to all of our players to manage their health, on the premise it does not cause inconvenience to the public.”
