By Aaron Humes: Belize’s top semi-professional football league has been reestablished following internal disputes and on June 2 elected a new executive.
The seventh ordinary elective congress of the Premier League of Belize (PLB) was held in Roaring Creek. It elected Ian Haylock – President, Godfrey Arzu – Vice President, Karol Maldonado Claros – Female Executive Member, Lorin Frazer – Executive Member and Jordan Zabaneh – Executive Member.
Overseeing the election was the FFB Electoral Committee Chairman Dale Cayetano, Representative from the Elections and Boundaries Department Nadino Reid and Justice of the Peace Kent Fuller along with the FFB General Secretary Earl Jones.
As we previously reported, the PLB will kick off its Opening Championship with nine teams on Saturday, July 23, 2022.
The nine clubs will play a double round robin with playoffs afterwards to determine the champion. That champion will represent Belize in the 2023 Central American Club Championship which qualifies six teams for the new and expanded Concacaf Champions League which Concacaf announced on June 1.
The PLB had been inactive after election problems landed it in court, but matters were settled earlier in the year and the PLB assisted the Football Federation of Belize in organizing and running the FFB Top League Closing Season won by Verdes.
Nine teams attended the congress, namely Bandits Sports, Placencia Assassins, Verdes FC, San Pedro Pirates, Altitude FC, Wagiya FC, Freedom Fighters, Police FC, and Belize Defence Force FC.
The FFB congratulates and recognizes the new Executive of the Premier League of Belize and wishes the League all the best as they prepare for their upcoming football season.
