Bojang further disclosed that the runner-up in the league will be given D35,000 as prize. He said the league started in late February and will end on May 18 with each of the twelve teams to play eleven matches. “We initially wanted to play 22 matches but the GFF has advised that all football must stop in May in respect of the Fifa World Cup so we gathered representatives of all teams to agree that this year the regional league shall stop at only one round,” Bojang told The Standard yesterday. He said the very creation of the league at this level is a measure of the progress of football development at the grassroots. ”The matches played so far received great enthusiasm from the public and inspired people to take ownership of their community teams,” he said.
