LeFA suspend football activities due to COVID-19 surge


The Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) has announced the suspension of football activities with immediate effect due to COVID-19 cases increase in the Mountain Kingdom.

The Lesotho Premier League resumed on December 12 after it was halted for seven months because of the deadly virus. The return to action was boosted by the announcement of Vodacom as the new sponsors of the Lesotho Premier League in a deal worth R8.5-million.

The top-flight was expected to continue this coming weekend following a short Christmas break.

The Women’s Super League, as well as the A Division League were also scheduled to get underway this month.

“The NEC of LeFA, in consultation with and on recommendations of the PLMC, ADMACO, B and C Management, and the Women Super League Management, has resolved to suspend all league games and group training sessions with effect from Tuesday 5 January 2021, for an initial period of two weeks,” the statement said.

“The duration of this suspension will be reviewed from time to time by the NEC in consultation with NACOSEC and all parties concerned.

“This emergency decision has been necessitated by the sweeping resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic in Lesotho and the world over, which is claiming many lives on a daily basis.”
