SANTIAGO, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Chilean Professional Football Association (ANFP) cancelled all remaining 2019 fixtures in the country's top three divisions on Friday amid ongoing social unrest.
Club presidents voted 42-6 in favor of ending the season early due to "force majeure", ANFP said in a statement on its official website.
"In the same meeting it was decided that this year's competitions will not have promotion or relegation," the statement read. "The 2020 tournaments will have the same ... teams as the 2019 season."
Local media reported that first division leaders Universidad Catolica had been crowned 2019 champions, though it was not confirmed by ANFP.
Chile's major football competitions have been suspended since mid-October, when protests against rising living costs and inequality turned violent.
At least 20 people have been killed and hundreds more injured amid clashes between protesters and police, looting and arson attacks, according to local authorities.
