SRC: Bio-secure Bubble Precondition For Football Return

The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) says a bio-secure bubble is a precondition for the return of Premier League football.

This suggests that local football is not returning soon considering that a bio-bubble format was initially proposed by the PSL only to be shelved due to financial constraints.

PSL then adopted the current system that requires mandatory testing before training and every game.

SRC said the current system was still not sufficient to avoid the continued spread of the coronavirus since players and officials were commuting from home. Said SRC:

_It is clear that protocols designed to mitigate the lack of a bio-secure bubble for players and officials (the costs were said to be prohibitive) were not being effectively adhered to or monitored by the affected individuals and clubs resulting in the rising rate of infections. This posed a significant risk of infection from their respective communities (which were not a controlled environment) in circumstances where the rate of local transmission has significantly increased as evidenced by the numbers released by the Ministry of Health and Child Care. Without placing footballers and officials in a bio-secure bubble, the immediate return of Premier League football in the present environment is simply not possible._

_A positive player risks infecting teammates, close family members and subsequently, the community. It is clear that any return to topflight football at this stage can only happen if a full bio-secure bubble environment is implemented where players and officials reside in controlled environments for the duration of the tournament. This is the position implemented by cricket and rugby, among other protocols, leading to the various exceptions granted to them in the present environment._

This will be a huge blow to football lovers, clubs and players who were expecting the immediate return of the sport after it was suspended last year following the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country.
