PFF readies guidelines
for games restart

The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) has laid out its guidelines on the potential return of football activities, whether professional or amateur football competitions, in anticipation of the easing of the community quarantine guidelines imposed nationwide, a news release posted on its website said.

As per Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) guidelines, team sports are currently not allowed under the varying levels of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) and General Community Quarantine (GCQ).

PFF has made representations, along with other stakeholders, to the Games and Amusement Board (GAB) for guidance in convincing the IATF to allow the gradual return (training first and thereafter actual matches or games) of professional leagues such as the Philippines Football League (PFL).

Half of Tokyo residents
oppose Olympics in 2021

Just over half of Tokyo's residents don't think the postponed 2020 Olympics should be held next year, backing either a further delay or outright cancellation because of fears over the coronavirus, according to a poll published yesterday.

The survey carried out by two Japanese news organizations is only a single data point, but comes after health experts warned that even a year's delay may not be sufficient to hold the Games safely.

The poll conducted over the weekend found 51.7 percent of respondents hope the Games in 2021 are postponed again or cancelled, while 46.3 percent want to see the rescheduled Olympics go ahead.
