Maseru, March 17 (The Night’s Watch) – Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) has suspended all soccer matches for two weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The decision follows an urgent meeting that the National Executive Committee of LeFA had with the Premier League Management Committees on Monday.
Following the meeting and in a statement on Tuesday, LeFA announced that: “That all leagues under the auspices of the Lesotho Football Association be suspended for the next two weeks effective from Monday, March 16, until March 31.”
It added that: “In the meantime, the Association and the League Management Committees advise the teams to suspend training sessions as a measure to tread on the right side of caution. And that players be encouraged to train on their own during this period.”
LeFA said these measures were taken in the best interest of the sponsors, players, coaches, officials, the fans and the supporters.
“The association wishes to apologize to the football fraternity and the public at large for the inconvenience that will be caused,” it said.
“All leagues shall hopefully commence during the weekend of the 04th and 05th April 2020 from where they are currently at,” the association added. NW
