No bio-secure environment for upcoming National Premier League season

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Simon Preston

Recent talk about the new campaign of the National Premier League being played in a “bubble” if the new season gets underway on its proposed starting date of November 14, appears to have dissipated.

With the cost that comes with such venture, the Professional Football Jamaica Limited (JPFL) does not see the reason to house players in a bio-secure environment.

It was felt by some persons that the best practice for the Premier League would be a bubble if the health and safety of the players were to be taken into consideration.

But that will not be the case; instead players will be asked to return home after matches and return on match days.

According to JPFL board member Donovan White, bubble is a buzz word and the most practical approach to take is to protect all stakeholders around the game.

Meanwhile, JFF president Michael Ricketts says there will be fines and punishment for clubs and players who fail to follow the COVID-19 protocols.
