‘We’ll Abide’ – Clubs Welcome JFF Decision On Settling National Premier League In Case Of Abrupt Ending

Mount Pleasant manager David Galloway and Dunbeholden manager Paul Christie are welcoming the expected rule changes to the upcoming National Premier League season should it be brought to an abrupt end.

The 2020-21 campaign is expected to kick off on November 14 pending final approval of protocols from the Ministry of Health & Wellness.

Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) General Secretary Dalton Wint confirmed at the press conference to launch the league on September 21 that rules are being crafted regarding how the season will finish if there is another disruption related to the COVID-19 pandemic or any other unforeseen incidents. Wint said that the measure will be finalised by the JFF board and released before the start of the season.

The 2019-20 campaign was suspended in March and ultimately cancelled in May with no champion crowned and no relegation despite attempts for a return in July. Mount Pleasant said that the club will work with whatever is decided but regrets that such a framework was not considered for last season.
