New Delhi, April 4

A surge in Covid cases has led to the postponement of the playoff matches of the Indian Women’s League (IWL). The matches were scheduled here from April 7.

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) said the decision to postpone the games was made after an “internal discussion and communication with the clubs and state associations”. “Keeping in mind the safety and security of players and officials in view of the rise in Covid-19 cases all over the country, the playoffs for the Hero Indian Women’s League scheduled to be held in Delhi from April 7… has been postponed until further notice,” AIFF said in a statement.

India reported 93,249 Covid positive cases since Saturday, the highest daily rise since September last year. The country has been registering a steady increase in the cases for 25 days in a row. Delhi, the venue for the playoffs, recorded over 3500 cases for the second consecutive day on Saturday. — TNS, Agencies
