Syrian Premier League kicks off on Wednesday


Damascus: Defending champions Teshrin will kick off the defence of their title against Hutteen SC as the Syrian Premier League starts on Wednesday with several precautionary measures in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Syrian Football Association announced that fans will be able to attend matches but with stadiums limited to 40 percent of the total capacity to adhere to the guidelines on physical distancing.

Teshrin, who won their third league title last July, will hope to recover from their recent defeat to Al Wahda in the Syrian Super Cup in the Latakia Derby against Hutteen.
