By Benjamin Flowers: The Premier League of Belize has condemned the violence displayed at a football game last night where player Jessie August was attacked by fans.
The PLB issued a statement today following the match between Verdes and Altitude FC, where August was knocked to the ground and surrounded by a group of people who proceeded to repeatedly kick him.
“Security is of the highest concern as it relates to players, match officials, clubs, and our fans. The matters are under review and another press release will be forthcoming next week once a decision has been confirmed. Violence has no place in the beautiful game that we know as football,” the PLB said.
Despite the incident, the match proceeded and Verdes won the game 1-0
