By BBN Staff: BBN has been informed that the semi-final rematch between Verdes and the Belize Defense Force (BDF) will be played at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, May 16th at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio. As BBN had earlier reported, BDF won its appeal against the cancellation of a penalty scored in the first semi-finals game played against Verdes FC three (3) weeks ago.
Whichever team wins tomorrow will qualify and clinch the remaining spot in the finals. The winner of the Verdes-BDF semi-final matchup will not have much rest time as the first game of the finals against the Belmopan Bandits is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th.
The second game of the finals against the Bandits will be played on Monday, May 21st and this will determine the champion of the Premier League of Belize (PLB) Closing Season.
The winner of the PLB’s Closing Season will also most likely be the team to move on to the Scotia Bank CONCACAF Champions League. The drawing for the Champions League will be held in Miami on 23rd May, 2018 hence the reason all remaining games have to be played within the next week.
BBN encourages football fans and enthusiasts to come out and support their favourite team. The BDF team is asking their fans to come out in red while Verdes is offering a $10 discount to loyal fans who come out wearing their green or any other Verdes shirt.
