The football governing body announced in a statement that after consultations with its league bodies such as the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC), A Division Management Committee (ADMACO), the Women Super League Management as well as B and C Management, its executive committee resolved to suspend all league games and grouping training sessions with effect from Tuesday.
The move comes less than two months since the start of the Lesotho Premier League, which was expected to resume this week following a short Christmas break. The A Division, as well as Women Super League, was also expected to get underway this weekend.
Bantu was at the top of the Vodacom Premier League tied with Matlama on 14 points after four games when the league went to the Christmas break. Both clubs have enjoyed a great start to the new season winning all their four matches. Mobile giants Vodacom was recently announced as the new sponsors of the league with a deal worth M8.5 million.
This is the second time that LeFA has been forced to suspend football activities in the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The association initially suspended all football activities in March 2020, following the outbreak of the Corona Virus, which lead to the end of the season and Bantu being declared league champions. A-Matšo-Matebele were at that stage 18 points ahead of second-placed Matlama, but still eight games to play.
