Australia's National Rugby League restarts its 2020 season today, in what is being seen as a triumph for Australian Rugby League Commission chairman Peter V'landys. V'landys pushed "Project Apollo", the league's working group to restart play after the Covid-19 interruption, through obstacles including public criticism for being too ambitious, the departure of the league's chief executive, and threats of industrial action by referees - The Guardian

Japanese football's J.League is planning to resume its 2020 season on June 27 or July 4. The league is considering dividing into eastern and western divisions to reduce travel - Kyodo News
