The Chinese Super League will return to action in mid-July after a delayed restart to the second phase of the season, the Chinese Football Association has announced.

The CSL will complete the next phase of the season (rounds six to 14) between July 12 and August 17, before pausing for a second time to give the Chinese national team time to prepare for the third round of Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifying, set to start on September 2.
