The team restarts training after being quarantined, and the referee must arrive at the competition area at the latest 5 days before the start of the game

If there are no special circumstances, the Chinese Super League teams will enter the blue zone for epidemic prevention at the latest on the 29th

  As of the morning of May 19, the plan for the start of the new season of the Chinese Super League has not been approved by the higher-level management. However, in order to ensure that the league can be unveiled on June 3 as planned, preparations for each division have been fully started.

According to the requirements, each team (except in special circumstances) should enter the blue zone for epidemic prevention by May 29 at the latest.

At present, the preparations for the opening activities of the league have also been started. The referees involved in the enforcement of the league will also arrive in the competition area as early as possible in order to meet the epidemic prevention requirements of the competition area.

  Organizer reminds to arrange travel properly

  According to the kick-off plan, the new season of the Chinese Super League will kick off on June 3.

Although the plan has not yet been approved by the higher authorities, the start-up work has been fully launched.

Affected by the epidemic situation and the territorial epidemic prevention policies of each competition area, most of the main leaders of the Chinese Football Association and the Chinese Football Federation's preparatory group and various personnel involved in the preparations for the league have gone to each competition area.

  Recently, the organizers of the tournament have also notified clubs that unless there are extremely special circumstances, teams must enter the competition area by May 29 at the latest.

At present, the Shanghai Shenhua and Shanghai Haigang teams have entered the Dalian Division, and the Beijing Guoan Team has also arrived in the Meizhou Division. After receiving the necessary isolation and observation, several teams have also restarted their training mode in the near future.

  Competition supervisors and referees who are about to participate in the work of the Chinese Super League in the new season have also received notices to enter the competition area.

Due to the different epidemic prevention and personnel isolation measures implemented in different competition areas, and the wide distribution of referees, the organizers of the event also reminded referees to pay attention to the epidemic situation and changes in local epidemic prevention policies in real time, and make appropriate travel plans.

Generally speaking, the referees must arrive at the competition area at the latest 5 days before the start of the game, that is, on the 29th.

  The opening game of Shandong Taishan team has variables

  At present, the organizers of the event have started planning the specific content of the opening activities of the Chinese Super League in the new season.

The opening ceremony and opening game will be held at the Wuyuanhe Stadium in the Haikou Division.

The match will be between defending champion Shandong Taishan and another team in the same group.

Prior to this, it was reported that the organizers had considered arranging the Chongqing Liangjiang Athletic Team to participate in the opening game.

  However, this week, the members of Chongqing Liangjiang Athletic Team did not participate in training due to long-term arrears of wages. Some media speculated that if the arrears of wages are not properly resolved, the team may not be able to participate in the Chinese Super League as scheduled.

  Although there is no reliable information so far to confirm that Chongqing Liangjiang Athletic Team will be absent from the Chinese Super League in the new season, the organizers of the event should have prepared response plans for various accidents or extreme situations that may occur.

Some analysts also said that the opponent of the Taishan team's opening game may be changed to the Zhejiang team in the same group.

  So once a team withdraws from the competition, will the Chinese Super League select other teams from lower-level league clubs to participate in the Chinese Super League competition in the new season?

In reality, there is almost no such possibility.

Once a team confirms to retire, then normally, all rounds of the team involved will be sentenced to a loss.

Since there are still nearly two weeks before the scheduled start time, Chongqing Liangjiang Athletic Club still has time to deal with internal affairs.

The Chinese Football Association and the preparatory team of the Chinese Football Federation are also paying close attention to this matter, and will not activate emergency plans unless it is a last resort.
