The Chinese Super League will not make compromises on it's return.
Football in the country was halted in February, before the new season could get underway, after the outbreak of the coronavirus in the city of Wuhan.
The Chinese FA have revealed a 'Three Nos' policy, whereby they will refuse to host games in empty stadiums, extend the lead into 2021, nor reduce the number of games in a season.
The South China Morning Post says the final decision will be taken on whether to continue next week.
In any event, while the season may be cancelled, the country's FA Cup competition will still go ahead.
