The first day of the Challenge League Championship will be cut by two matches on Friday. After Schaffhausen – Kriens, Neuchâtel Xamax – Aarau is also postponed.
If cases of Covid-19 in the Kriens camp are the cause of the postponement of the first match, it is the impressive flooding of Lake Neuchâtel which is the cause of the dismissal of Neuchâtel Xamax-Aarau.
At the end of a coordination session, the various stakeholders came to the conclusion that all the safety and health requirements could not be met, in particular following the rising waters of Lake Neuchâtel in recent days.
In addition, the match between FC Thun and the newly-promoted Yverdon Sport FC, also on the program this Friday evening, is moved from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on blue Zoom on Free TV.
