By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The most anticipated game in the Premier League of Belize 2023-24 Opening Season will be played out at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex in Belize City at 4:00 pm on Sunday when leaders Progresso and Port Layola clash in the battle for first place. Tied at 17 points, at present Progresso hold first place on goal difference.

Progresso and Port Loyola showed a lot of promise last year when they joined the Premier League of Belize and they have not disappointed this season leading the national football championship.

“This will be a match for the ages as the two front runners of the young season square off for early bragging rights and supremacy,” Port Layola said in a social media post promoting the match.

The battle will feature Gilroy ‘Bredda’ Thurton and Jesse August defending the home turf against visiting Horace Avila and Andir Chi.

In the South, oldest derby in the Premier League of Belize will play to the rhythm of the Garifuna drums at the Carl Ramos Stadium in Dangriga at 4:00 pm on Sunday as well. Wagiya, the second oldest club, take on the oldest team in the league, defending champions Verdes. The match is always full of intensity regardless of the score.

“We will be boosted by the return of two notable absences in the Progresso game Ronaldo Pabon the Colombian and Kofi Nnadi the African,” owner-manager Nelson Moss said in a social media post.

Before those two Sunday games, two other matches will kick off the PLB weekend in Belmopan and Benque Viejo del Carmen.

The Belmopan Bandits will take on Benque Viejo United at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium in Belmopan at 7:30 pm while Benque Police, otherwise known as Police Benque, Police United, or Club Deportivo Benque, will be matching up against southern powerhouse Altitude. That match will be played at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen at 7:30 pm.

Good games for the weekend in the Premier League of Belize.
