Vodacom Premier League and Likatola return

Victorious conquests
The Lesotho rugby side after their 31-11 win over Malawi
The Vodacom Premier League will return to action this weekend after a week off because of the international break. The pick of this weekend’s ties will be Lioli’s clash against LDF where the champions will be looking to bounce back after a surprise 1-0 loss to LMPS on the opening weekend of the season.

The league will resume with its week three fixtures after this past weekend’s second round was postponed.

Other interesting ties this weekend are Bantu’s visit to Likhopo on Saturday while Matlama host LMPS on Sunday.

Staying with football and the launch of the A-Division’s Splitz Benefit Cup has been postponed. The first division’s showpiece tournament was supposed to have taken place last month, however, sponsors Splitz Marketing and Services have postponed until further notice as they are still finalising prizes for the competition.

It is unclear when the tournament, which was launched last year, will take place because the A-Division league season is set to begin this weekend.

The A-Division, which is divided into two streams of ten teams, will run until April next year with the two winners of the respective streams gaining promotion to the Vodacom Premier League. This year the season will kick off with the southern stream on Saturday before the northern stream opens on Sunday.

Finally, to rugby and the Lesotho national side Likatola is back in the country after a brilliant 31-11 win over Malawi last week. Since their first match in 2014, Likatola have amassed an impressive record. Likatola have now played seven international games winning four and losing just three.
