Tahiti Football abandons season, no champion declared

The competition was suspended in March because of the Covid-19 outbreak but the club presidents now decided to abandon the 2019-2020 championship.

The Federation said it was difficult to make up the missed matches and decided to abandon all leagues.

The three are As Pirae, AS Venus and AS Tiare Tahiti.
