Chairman of Professional Football Jamaica Limited (PFJL) Christopher Williams, is pressing the Government to facilitate the resumption of football while refuting claims that this season’s Jamaica Premier League (JPL) competition will not be restarted until the national roll-out of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Williams told The Gleaner that his organisation is unaware of any such prerequisite and that they are still waiting for a meeting that has been promised by the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) and the Ministry of Sports, which will signal when the JPL will restart.
“I don’t know where that is coming from,” said Williams. “There is no meeting as yet. We are anxiously waiting on a call to have the discussions.”
“We were promised that we would be given this opportunity the first thing in January, and now we are halfway in January and we still don’t hear anything,” Williams added.
