THE 2022/23 A-Division League is starting next month, the A-Division Management Committee (ADMACO) has said.

ADMACO public relations officer, Mothusi Letsie, told this publication this week that unlike the premier league, they had tentatively set the A-Division season’s starting date as 1 October 2022.

The premier league is starting this weekend.

“The official dates are not yet confirmed but the first games are likely to be played on 1 and 2 October 2022,” Letsie said.

The fixtures will also be released later.

The commencement of the games has also been delayed by the premier league and A-Division promotional play-offs which will be held on 18 September 2022 at Bambatha Tšita Sports Arena.

The play-offs will see two A Division teams, Limkokwing and Naughty Boys battle for the premier league slot left by Kick4Life when the side withdrew from the league last season.

The slot that will be left by one of the two sides in the A-Division will be filled by the B-Division play-offs winner between AC Milan and Linotsi.

Letsie said the league would also run without a sponsor in the upcoming season. It has not had a sponsor for the last two seasons. This after PostBank indefinitely deferred its sponsorship on account of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We still don’t have a sponsor since PostBank asked for a break on account of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

In the absence of a sponsor, the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) has been bankrolling the league.
