Mansingh sees difficulty in MOHW giving greenlight for NPL to resume

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Jerome Foster

The decision by the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) to announce activities and a proposed date to the start of the National Premier League (NPL) is now being seen as a premature move as uncertainty looms. 

Players and fans were upbeat when the JFF made the grand announcement three weeks ago that the NPL could be returning on November 15 as there was only minor details to be worked out with the Ministry of Health and Wellness ()MOHW).

A proposal was sent to the ministry from August, but it seems no follow-up was done until Radio Jamaica Sports sought an answer from Minister of Health Dr Christopher Tufton earlier this week.

A meeting is planned between the MOHW and the JFF, but Dean of the Faculty of Sports at the UWI Mona Campus, Dr Akshai Mansingh, sees a difficulty with the minister giving the JFF the go-ahead to play.

The proposed start to the NPL was also made without a title sponsor on board or confirmation of the central venues to be used for matches.
