“There is a probability of change in the calendar of the championship,” he added.

Ndikuriyo had warned that any club will be punished if it missed any league or cup match in the pretext of COVID-19.

However, this latest development seemed to soften his stand and has realized the danger posed by continuing with football activities. 

Burundi was among the only four countries across the world that were pushing on with sporting activities as the rest of the world took a hit from coronavirus pandemic.

The others were Belarus, Nicaragua, and Tajikistan where football leagues are still going on.
