Following Vietnam, Thailand considers postponing all the national leagues due to coronavirus outbreak

After deciding to organize all matches behind closed doors, FAT said they might temporarily postpone as Vietnam did before.

Speaking to the Thai media, FAT officials said that postponing matches in all Thai national leagues was the best method to prevent the risks of suffering from the coronavirus outbreak.

However, they have to wait for the response from the Indonesian government before deciding what to do in the following days.

Before Thailand, Vietnam decided to postpone all matches in the national leagues due to the coronavirus outbreak a few weeks ago. Following them, both Japan and South Korea also did the same thing.

Nevertheless, things will be very different for Thailand when they agreed to allow the China national football team to play international matches in their country in March.

Unlike in Thailand, Vietnam did well to resolve the problem caused by the coronavirus outbreak. At the moment, VFF officials are ready to reschedule football competitions held in Vietnam, which can be launched in March.

Initially, the 2020 V-League 1 season was scheduled to start on February 21, however, it has been delayed due to the outbreak of coronavirus epidemic in Vietnam. Hanoi FC is currently the defending champion of the league.

Vietnam is not the first country that decided to postpone matches in the national league. A few days ago Japan and South Korea did the same thing, following the activity of the Chinese Football Association (CFA).
