The Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (FABD) recently announced the cancellation of Brunei Super League 2021, considering the timeframe needed to adjust to the new norms when the country started to open its activities once again.
The association in a statement said that the league will be considered abandoned, and it is moving forward to organise 2022 league editions.
“This decision will give ample time for clubs and academies to properly ensure that all players have completed their vaccinations – as the new norms will require complete doses for anyone to be participating in any types of gatherings including team sports like football,” said FABD.
Furthermore, the timeframe needed will also be used to update and integrate all best practices into the current Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) pertaining to COVID-19 with the use of Antigen Rapid Test (ART) to be considered from time to time.
“This is to ensure that everyone involved in the running of football in Brunei Darussalam is safe from the pandemic and posed a responsible community,” it added.
Clubs and academies are also reminded that the Transfer Window will still be from December 7, 2021 to February 28, 2022. Any transfer before and after this period is not allowed.
FABD would also like to remind everyone to stay safe, observe their health and practice proper hygiene, also to take precautions whenever going out for any activities as health and safety are paramount for all.
