Weekend games set for PLB tournament kick-off
At the ninth hour, 9:51 tonight, to be exact, the Premier League Secretariat sent us the Week 1 schedule of games for the new tournament which kicks off this weekend. It was also noted that, with only 8 teams participating, there would no longer be a need for any mid-week games. There is nothing like a tournament kick-off to diffuse the festering discontent of competing clubs with a league executive, and re-direct the energy to football competition on the field.
One area of interest going into this new season, is the speculation regarding the destination of a number of quality players whose clubs are not participating in this tournament, and who may therefore become “free agents.” Some fans will be looking to see where their idol goes, before they decide which team they will ride with in the coming competition.
So, here goes Week 1 of the PLB 2012-2013 Closing Season:
Saturday, February 9
7:30 p.m. – Belmopan Bandits vs Verdes FC – Isidoro Beaton Stadium
Sunday, February 10
3:30 p.m. – Placencia Assassins vs Police United FC – Placencia Football Field
3:30 p.m. – San Ignacio United vs Belize Defense Force FC – Norman Broaster Stadium
4:00 p.m. – F.C. Belize vs FC San Felipe Barcelona – MCC Grounds
