BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Nov. 16, 2023
Week 14 and a back-match game are all that remain in the regular season of the Premier League of Belize (PLB) 2023-2024 Opening Season, and it is a mad scramble indeed to see which 4 teams will make the playoffs. Defending champions Verdes FC have already secured their playoff berth with 28 points; but 4 other teams are very much in the race for the 3 other sports. The spoiler in it all could be Bandits Sports which has two back matches, one each with Port Layola FC and Altitude FC, both trying to secure their place in the playoffs. (See Week 13 standings below.)
No word yet on when the 2 back matches will be played.
Interestingly, presumably due to anticipated playoff race implications, the PLB had scheduled all 4 games in Week 14 on the same day and time.
