Lesotho Football Association has finally surrendered and decided to end the Lesotho Premier League abruptly because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The decision to end the domestic football league was communicated by the Lesotho Football Association (LFA) secretary-general on Friday.
“You will recall that the Lesotho Football Association’s National Executive Committee on the 29th May 2020 released a circular that postponed the end of the season to Friday, 31st July 2020 is indeed the final day of the 2019-20 football season. Expectation is rife amongst the football fraternity regarding the dates of the commencement of the 2020-21 football season,” read part of the statement.
“At this stage, it is not clear when the 2020/21 season shall commence as due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of Emergency still exists and under the State of Emergency, sport is prohibited,” the statement added.
Bantu was on top of the table with 50 points from 18 matches played by the time of this development.
Matlama and LCS were in the 2nd and 3rd positions with 34 and 33 points respectively while Lijabatho (13) and Mazenod Swallows (6) were bottom placed.
