News of TRNC Football Season for 2021-22

By Richard Beale….

The Turkish Cypriot Football Federation has announced its proposed plans for season 2021-22.

The football season will start with the Super Cup Final (equivalent to the Charity Shield) on September 10th. The Super League and League 1 will commence the following week 17-18-19 September. This is of course subject to the Covid 19 pandemic being under control or hopefully banished from our shores altogether.

I should imagine, when they are allowed to, football teams will recommence training and building up their fitness levels as soon as possible. With the season starting in September then regular training and pre-season friendly matches will be held in July and August, the hottest months of the year – best of luck with that!   Still, with the gradual re-opening of everything, it is good news that we have local football to look forward to later on in the year.
