After a four-month break due to COVID-19, the National League football competition resumed on Sunday, July 26.
This is according to a media release from the BVI Football Association (BVIFA) which said National League games are scheduled to be played on Tortola and Virgin Gorda following strict COVID-19 protocols.
BVIFA’s recently re-appointed President, Andrew Bickerton said that a lot of behind the scenes work has been taking place to ensure the resumption.
“On the field, there is much to look forward to, for both men’s and women’s football, and we are also taking great strides off it, especially with the stadium plans,” Bickerton stated.
“The floodlights are to be installed shortly and the executive will then turn its focus on selecting a contractor for the construction of the main stand,” he added.
Things resumed with the Sugar Boys clobbering One Caribbean in a 5-2 victory at Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground. In the second match for the day, the Panthers conceded a late goal to the Wolues in a 1-2 defeat.
Next weekend will see the National League pause for the FA’s Women’s & Men’s Festival Cup tournaments.
