By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Dale Pelayo will be taking over the helm as head coach of the Belmopan Bandits for the upcoming Premier League of Belize Opening Championship which should start in July.

The Bandits made the announcement on social media on Thursday.

“Bandits Sports is pleased to introduce our Head Coach Dale Pelayo Sr.,” the Bandits said.

“Coach Dale is no stranger to the Bandits and is a Coach with the National Team Youth program. Coach Dale is particularly gifted in coaching young players and since the new Bandits SC will be eighty percent U23 and fifty percent U20 this is the perfect team for Coach Dale.

“We expect good things. Welcome back, Coach Dale.”

Pelayo has experience coaching the Belize Men’s National Team at the senior and junior levels and has also coached the Bandits previously. He returns at a time when the Bandits are seeking to renovate the squad. For the 2022-23 Closing Championship, the Bandits attempted a merger with Mexican club Internacional FC, but things didn’t turn out as expected. The Bandits played their worst season ever, finishing the championship with only two points from two draws in 14 games. Accustomed to winning championships, the Bandits were shocked back to life after not being able to win a single game.

As a club that has won nine PLB championships and one National Elite Basketball League (now Belize Elite Basketball League) title and is involved in other sports as well, the Belmopan club is trying to revamp its organization and has been looking for volunteers, including a Chief Operating Officer, to manage the club.

Bandits, the football team, is now selling 2023-24 season passes to “help the Club to build financial security for our players”.
