The Turkish Football Federation (TFT) has announced that all leagues, including the Turkish Super Lig, will pause until further notice.
Turkey had come under criticism for its refusal to suspend its club season, as almost every other European nation had in response to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Following an emergency meeting involving government officials, including President Tayyip Erdoğan, the TFT released a statement announcing its decision to halt play indefinitely.
"It was decided to postpone leagues to a later date. After this decision, the new calendar will be determined after the works to be carried out in line with the developing conditions in the Super Lig, TFF 1. Lig, TFF 2. Lig and TFF 3. Lig."
