(elbcradio.com/June 4, 2015)-Liberia’s 2014/2015 National football League is expected to commence in Monrovia Thursday, June 4, 2015 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS).

It was previously scheduled to be held Wednesday, but was rescheduled to take place Thursday.

According to an LFA source, the second division encounters will mark the start of the season.
The source also said the National League is now being played under a different format to ensure that the league runs for a shorter period.

The twelve first division clubs are being divided into two groups of six, where each team in either group will be required to play 10 games.
This means each team will engage every group member twice.

According to the new fixture, the defending champion, BYC, is in Group A,  paired against Monrovia Club Breweries, Nimba United, Watanga FC, Jubilee FC and IE. Group B members are LPRC Oilers, LISCR FC, FC Fassell, Keitrace FC, NPA Anchors and Arise FC. 

BYC will begin the defense of their title Saturday against Monrovia Club Breweries at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS), while Nimba United opening its Mount Barclay playing pitch against Watanga FC.

Jubilee FC and IE will travel to Margibi County to play each other at the Nancy B. Doe Sports Stadium in Kakata.

Also, the Second Division clubs were arranged in two groups, with BYC II paired in Group A alongside ELWA United, Small Town FC, Mighty Blue Angels, Joy Conqueror and Sesay FC.

Gardnerville FC, Mighty Barrolle, Holders FC, Nimba FC and Mighty Dragon are the clubs in group B.

BYC II and Mighty Blue Angels will begin the campaign in the Second Division Thursday in the first match at the ATS, while ELWA and Small Town FC will face off in game two at the same venue.

Meanwhile, the LFA is yet to set a date for the finals of the President’s Cup.

The President’s Cup final will, however, be played in a best out of three round robin among LISCR FC, Keitrace FC and FC Fassell.-
