By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Premier League of Belize has rescheduled the San Pedro-Verdes game for a second time (third attempt to play the match) and will try to finish the Closing Championship by the Concacaf League deadline of May 28.

The game will now be played on Sunday evening in Belmopan.

The San Pedro-Verdes game, which should have been played in San Pedro on Saturday, April 8, was reprogrammed for last Wednesday, May 10 in Belmopan. But San Pedro didn’t show up for the match. The Pirates later claimed the were not properly informed of the game for last Wednesday night and weren’t afforded enough time to get to Belmopan. Hence, they did not show up.

“The PLB Organizing Committee after reviewing all the facts made the decision that the game needs to be rescheduled for Sunday, May 14, 2023, at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium in Belmopan at 7:30 pm,” the PLB said in press release posted on social media at about 1:30 pm on Saturday.

“The official dates and schedule for the semi-final matches will soon be released,” the PLB said.

However, inside sources said the PLB Organizing Committee had already set the dates to finish by May 28, the deadline to hand over the name of Belize’s representative to the Concacaf League to the regional body.

According to the source the Organizing Committee ruled that the semifinals will be played on Wednesday, May 17 and Saturday, May 20 and/or Sunday, May 21. The finals will be played on Wednesday, May 24 and Saturday, May 27 or Sunday, May 28.

Verdes, the San Pedro Pirates, Port Layola, and Progresso have qualified for the semifinals, but positions 1 and 2 will be decided by the San Pedro Pirates-Verdes game. That game will decide the semifinal pairings.

It is our understanding that a number of the teams are not happy with the decision.
