Russian soccer league to restart on June 19

Published June 02,2020

The Russian soccer league says it will restart on June 19. That is two days earlier than originally planned.

The league says it gave the date of June 21 because of a longstanding practice of using the date of Sunday's games as the official nominal designation for a round of games over several days.

The restart will begin with two games on June 19. Krylya Sovetov Samara will play Akhmat Grozny and Sochi will face FC Rostov.

Russia is planning to allow a limited number of fans in the stadiums when games restart.
