What’s up with the PLB and Closing Season playoffs?

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Apr. 7, 2016–We’re in suspense with the Premier League of Belize (PLB). From Monday we have been awaiting the official reports for the last 3 backmatches, which have set the stage for playoffs due to start this coming weekend. Sketchy reports indicate that there have been meetings and meetings at the FFB headquarters up to yesterday; but still there has been no official word as to the purpose or the outcome.

At the end of the PLB Opening Season, when we thought we knew the standings and the teams that would meet in the semifinal playoffs, there was suddenly a report of a protested game from early in the first round being awarded to Belmopan Bandits, which drastically affected the standings and the playoff match-ups. In that case, the FFB Appeal Committee had over-ruled a decision by the PLB Protest Board. Is history about to repeat itself?

No official playoff schedule has been released yet, although fans are expecting that it should be #1 seed Police United vs #4 seed Placencia Assassins at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium on Saturday night; and #2 seed Belize Defence Force FC vs #3 seed Belmopan Bandits at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium also on Saturday night.

A new executive of the PLB was reportedly elected last Wednesday, March 30, but likewise we have received no official word on this yet from the FFB.
