The Ligue 1 season-opening date has been postponed after the recent COVID-19 cases in Marseille. The opening match between Marseille and St Etienne on Friday night has been postponed with the detection of three new COVID-19 cases in Marseille, France.

With these new three cases, the number of players and backroom staff who have contracted the virus hit four, after left-back, Jordan Amavi tested positive last week.

 

 

The LFP told clubs last week about the new set up of a "COVID committee" to advise on whether to postpone matches. When a club reports more than three coronavirus cases, match postponement is likely, based on the "COVID protocol", the LFP sent out to the clubs.
