By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “It’s been a long wait but we are very excited for the restart of Competitions and the Football Federation of Belize is making final preparations for the restart of the game,” said the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) in a press release on Friday.

Minister of Sports Kevin Bernard said earlier that if the pandemic situation improved contact sports like football may be allowed to return to competitive action by August 1.

“We remain hopeful that the Government of Belize will soon allow for the restart of contact sports and we need to ensure we are all ready,” said the FFB adding that it has now set tentative dates for the reinitiation of its competitions.

If contact sports are allowed next month, the FFB intends to kick-off its Amateur and Youth Competitions on August 1.

The National Amateur Women’s League (NAWL) would start one week later on August 7, while the Top League would reinitiate action on August 28.

The FFB said it is inviting clubs to register their teams in the U13, U15M, U17M, U15F, and U17F categories for the upcoming competitions.

Registration may be done at the regional offices “on a first come first served basis due to the limited number of spaces available as a result of the Covid-19 regulations.”

The FFB goes on to applaud clubs that already registered.

The FFB added that the tournaments will be “played under the established FFB Covid-19 regulation\protocol and under the guidelines from the Ministry of Health,” and “without fans in the first instance until otherwise indicated by the Ministry of Health.”

The FFB press release ends by encouraging football fans, players and their families to get vaccinated.
