Clubs in Romania have resolved to finish the coronavirus-wrecked 2019-20 season, but they’re aiming to play the rest of the games in Turkey.

Like other leagues across Europe, the Romanian Liga 1 was brought to an abrupt halt last month due to the spread of the pandemic.

But a plan has emerged for Steaua Bucharest and the rest to finish the campaign after it was discussed this week in a video conference, according to Romanian website GSP.

Romania’s Liga 1 has resolved to play the remaining games of the season in Turkey

The teams will leave for Turkey on chartered flights in two or three weeks’ time for a period of two months.

Training will be resumed in Antalya for a short pre-season before all the remaining matches are played out.

There are eight games left to play, with Liga 1 having already reached its end-of-season play-off stage.

The matches are slated to start in June and go through until the end of July.

Antalya has been identified as the region that could host the rest of the Romanian season

Footballers will be isolated in single rooms in hotels at a cost of £35 per night. 

Including the cost of accommodation, transportation and rental of stadiums the entire project could cost £1.75m to finish the season inside 60 days.  

Champions Cluj currently top the table and are on course for securing Champions League qualification next season.
