By BBN Staff:  The Belmopan Bandits Football Club (FC), winner of both the opening and the closing season of the Belize Premier Football League (BPFL), are getting ready to represent Belize in the ScotiaBank CONCACAF Champions League 2017.

Their first game will be held on August 3, 2017 in Nicaragua where they will face the Walter Ferretti Football Club.

The two teams will meet for the return match at the Isodoro Beaton Football Stadium in Belmopan on August 15, 2017.

The first game is exactly one week away but the Bandits appear to be in good shape, after performing well in a series of local and international friendly matches.

Last night the Bandits defeated Coast Guard FC with a commanding 4 nil score. The Bandits FC also tied nil-nil last week in a friendly with Inter Playa, a team from Playa Del Carmen that plays in Mexico’s Premier League.

The already star studded Bandits roster was boosted with the addition of Sydney Petillo, Morvin Budna, Matthew Leal and national team sweeper, Dalton Eiley. After losing the services of a number of their international players, the acquisition of international players in the likes of Georgie Welcome, Kervin Johnson and Darwin Bermudez are welcome additions to the Bandits line-up.

Belize’s star mid-fielder Denmark Casey Jr., has also returned to the team. It was previously announced that he had left the club and signed with Verdes but a review of his contract revealed that he remains with the Bandits until December 31, 2018.

BBN commends the BANDITS FC and wish them all the best as they represent the jewel.
