May 6, 2020 - All competitions organized by the Football Association of Montenegro (FSCG) will continue on June 1, the Association said.
According to the decisions of the National Coordination Body (NKT) for infectious diseases and the dynamics of normalization of sports activities, the Football Association will start competitions in Telecom First, Second, Youth, Cadet, Women, and Futsal League.
"Taking into account the decisions of the NKT and the guidelines of the European Football Association (UEFA), the Football Association of Montenegro has prepared a competition calendar for the remainder of the competition season in Telekom 1. CFL and the Second League of Montenegro," it said.
According to the proposed calendar, the continuation of the season is scheduled for June 1. The end of the regular season (round 36) in Telekom 1. CFL and the Second League would be July 19.
