Coronavirus latest updates
The 3F Superliga is back in action after the Danish government gave the green light for competitive sport to return, following a spring hiatus to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
The Superliga was just one of a string of sporting leagues in Denmark to be suspended when the coronavirus began to spread in March. The suspension of the league left FCK with two domestic games of the regular season remaining, plus the second leg of the UEFA Europa League last-16 clash with Istanbul Basaksehir.
A fixture list for the 3F Superliga has now been drawn up and FCK are playing domestic games once again. We are still awaiting confirmation from UEFA on their Europa League plans. However, fans will not be allowed to watch games from stadiums as the nation continues to preserve a number of distancing measures.
F.C. COPENHAGEN CORONAVIRUS LATEST UPDATES
FCK beat Lyngby 4-1 in our first match back since the coronavirus break. Our next competitive clash against Randers will be played on Sunday, 7 June at 17:00. This will then conclude the regular season, at which point the playoffs will begin.
FCK played two warm-up games against fellow Superliga teams to get up to pace ahead of the competitive return. The Lions drew 2-2 with OB on Friday, 22 May and beat SønderjyskE 3-1 on Tuesday, 26 May. Both games were staged in Telia Parken, with no fans in attendance.
See here for the provisional Danish football date schedule.
UEFA have confirmed the postponement of our UEFA Europa League last-16 home clash with Istanbul Basaksehir, with no official indication yet of when the game will be played.
