Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced on Saturday that the country’s top-flight Ekstraklasa league will resume on May 29, while speedway competitions will restart on June 12.

As in many other countries, the Ekstraklasa was suspended due to the global COVID-19 outbreak. Morawiecki said competition would initially resume without spectators.

“Sport will return to the stadiums, return to our homes. I am convinced that it will be a symbol of a return to normality. We must realize that we are facing a real marathon of challenges, but we have already successfully completed at least a few kilometers of this marathon. I am convinced that we will reach the finish line together,” Morawiecki said.

Minister of Sport Danuta Dmowska-Andrzejuk noted that athletes will undergo a mandatory two-week isolation, before resuming training in several stages.

“In the first stage they will restart training in small groups. They will be allowed to train without a mask on their faces.”
