Romanian league resolves to finish football season in Turkey

Romanian football clubs have resolved to finish the coronavirus-wrecked 2019-20 season, but they're aiming to play the rest of the games in Turkey.

Like other leagues across Europe, the Romanian Liga 1 was brought to an abrupt halt last month due to the spread of COVID-19.

But a plan has emerged for Steaua Bucharest and the rest to finish the campaign after it was discussed this week in a video conference, according to Romanian website GSP.

The teams will leave for Turkey on chartered flights in two or three weeks' time for a period of two months, Daily Mail reported.

Training will be resumed in Antalya, in the south of the country, for a short pre-season before all the remaining matches are played out.

There are eight games left to play, with Liga 1 having already reached its end-of-season play-off stage.

The matches are slated to start in June and go through until the end of July.
