Willie Clemons and his Dalkurd FF are set to begin on June 14th as Sweden's top two Football Leagues will have their belated kickoff after a coronavirus delay, authorities announced.
The Swedish Elite Football Association (SEF) said the top Division Allsvenskan and second-tier Superettan "will start according to plan."
Sweden may not have imposed a lockdown, but gatherings of more than 50 people are not permitted and the nation's public health agency took weeks to approve the big kick-off over concerns that fans may gather outside stadiums and in sports bars to watch games.
Aside from the extraordinary length of pre-season, the pandemic has thrown up numerous other challenges in Sweden, not least around travel.
Unless domestic rules are relaxed some clubs will have to complete 1,200-mile round trips by road to fulfil their fixtures.
International restrictions also mean the 130 or so foreign players in Sweden's top flight have largely been unable to see family members since January.
