Taipei: At a time when most leagues in the world are suspended, Chinese Taipei's Premier League and Mulan League are among the few active domestic leagues in the world.
The women's Mulan League, which resumed on April 11, has now opened its doors to fans with matches initially played behind closed doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision to reopen stadiums to fans was reached after careful consideration and discussion with the respective sports authorities and ministries in Chinese Taipei, with 300 fans allowed for each of the three matches that were played on Saturday.
The match between Taichung Blue Whale and Inter Taoyuan FC was the first to receive supporters, with Taichung recording a 3-1 victory.
Comprehensive protocols were established for fans to follow, such as name-based admission, socially distant seating arrangement, mandatory face mask and disinfection of facilities before, during and after the match.
After seven matches played, Taipei Bravo, who are on a five-game winning streak, lead the standings with 19 points, followed by Hualien FC on 17, with Taichung Blue Whale a further two back.
Both the Premier League and Mulan League can be streamed live on the CTFA's official YouTube channel.
