LEFA has extended the suspension of all leagues and group training sessions after the prime minister imposed the two-week national lockdown on Tuesday with the aim of curbing the skyrocketing spread of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A statement released by the association on Thursday says: “Pursuant to the LeFA notice to suspend all Leagues issued on Tuesday January 5 and also in the light of the Government Gazette of Wednesday January 13, the Lesotho Football Association by this circular wishes to inform the football fraternity in Lesotho that the NEC has

resolved to extend the suspension of all leagues and group training sessions under the auspices of LeFA until January 27.”

The statement further shows that during this period, all LeFA offices shall be closed and no services will be rendered while the LeFA Secretariat members including all District Football Association (DIFA) Administration Officers shall remain available on their mobile phones for support to the football fraternity.

LeFA has therefore urged Basotho and the football fraternity to stay at their respective homes and move only when necessary during the lockdown period.

“During this time, you are all requested to stay at home and leave only when you have to get essential commodities,” the statement further reads.

Clubs are directed not to train in groups but players are encouraged to train individually during the next two weeks while the LeFA NEC in consultation with NACOSEC and other stakeholders analyses the situation.  

LeFA had earlier suspended all football competitions a few days after the Christmas break.
