By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The 2022 National U13 Girls Elite Championship kicks off today Saturday, October 15, with five matches, according to the Football Federation of Belize (FFB).
Stann Creek host Belmopan at the Carl Ramos Stadium in Dangriga while Toledo do likewise with the Midsouth at the Victor Sanchez Union Field in Punta Gorda. Orange Walk play at home against Corozal at the People’s Stadium in Orange Walk. Benque Viejo del Carmen face Cayo at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen while Belize will stand up against San Pedro at the MCC Grounds in Belize City.
All games play at 2:00 pm.
The ten participating teams have been divided into two groups. Each team will play four games but, in a rather strange format, not necessarily against teams from their own groups. For example, Belmopan is playing Stann Creek and Toledo, who are not in their group.
Group A is made up of Stann Creek, Toledo, Cayo, Benque Viejo del Carmen, and Mid-South.
Group B consists of Corozal, Orange Walk, Belize, San Pedro, and Belmopan.
The top two teams in each group qualify to the home and away semifinals. To determine the national champions and third-place winners, the qualifying teams will play a knockout game.
The FFB said the tournament will run for seven weeks and should end by November 26, 2022. The games are scheduled to be played on Saturdays at 2:00p at 12 different stadiums in the country. The third-place match and the final will be played at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan on November 26 at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm respectively.
“The National U13 Girls Elite Championship is aimed towards the development of players which will lead to the selection of a pool of 40 girls who will form a part of FFB’s National Team Development Program,” said the FFB.
