In a statement issued by LeFA on October 26, the assistance would contribute in the preparations of the league resumption.
It reads as follow:
The Lesotho Football Association would like to inform the football fraternity that the National Executive Committee at its meeting with the Presidents of the Premier League Clubs on Tuesday, October 26, mutually agreed on the resumption of the league and the completion of the remaining games of the 2020/2021 football season.
The NEC and club Presidents have also agreed on what they mutually termed the starter pack support package to the clubs in terms whereof, the Premier League clubs will each receive support from LeFA in the sum of M27, 500 to enable them to prepare and resume the games.
The meeting also agreed that Premier League Clubs will have five weeks pre-season type of preparation before the league resumes and that PLMC will issue a fixture.
The NEC also promised to negotiate on behalf of clubs, the release of some playing fields during the first two games after the resumption referred to above.
In the meeting referred to above, the NEC and club leadership highlighted the importance of ensuring the vaccination of all players and officials prior to the resumption of the games.
Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) public relations officer Mr. Qamako Mahao confirmed that LeFA tendered the above-mentioned amount of money to each premier league team.
“It is a history making financial aid to the teams, because it is the first time LeFA provides teams for survival”, said Mahao.
“Yes PLMC was involved from the beginning to the end until teams were afforded this funding to start preparations”.
He said the money would help a lot because there were teams, which would not be able to endure without this funding.
Mahao further indicated that other teams were unable to attend training sessions due to financial setbacks.
