Earlier, Breifly.co.za reported that Club Brugge were crowned as champions of the Belgian league after their board decided to scrap their season due to the coronavirus concerns.

The decision resulted in Percy Tau earning his first major European club title.

Speculation then grew that other leagues would follow suit, but The Daily Sun reported that the campaign will not end prematurely.

Matthews said, “We would rather not have a new season altogether than leaving this one. Whatever happens, the current season will be completed even if it means that we will play until December.”

Matthews, who is also the SuperSport United CEO, said that the domestic season will be completed, even if teams need to play behind closed doors.
