Like most leagues around the globe, Ligi Kuu was suspended in March to help curb spread of the COVID-19 amongst fans.
But the government has since started easing restrictions and recently announced sporting activities will restart as from next month.
Tanzania stopped announcing COVID-19 cases with President John Magufuli maintaining they are winning the war with the help of God.
Defending Ligi Kuu champions Simba SC, who were leading the log before the suspension, have commenced group training.
