The Finnish authorities confirmed what was already planned, that the 2020 season will finally start on 1st July in the Nordic country.
It was intended to be so and has thus been confirmed by the authorities. Football will return to Finland on 1st July, thus starting the 2020 season.
Finnish football is played in a calendar year, due to the country’s harsh climate in the hard winter months. Normally it’s played from April to September, but this year, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the plan has changed.
The start has had to be delayed until July, 3 months later than expected, and it remains to be seen in what conditions the season starts. For now, the new season will start on 1st July, which is very likely to be played, at least in part, behind closed doors.
