JFF’s Ricketts Says Premier League Will Now Start in February


President of the Jamaica Football Federation JFF Michael Ricketts said his organisation has set aside a date in February for the restart of the Jamaica Premier League JPL.

This comes after previous deadlines, set for October and November 2020, were missed following the organiser’s failure to secure the go-ahead from government officials, given the COVID-19 spread in Jamaica.

Ricketts made his comments after Minister of Sport Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange’s announcement on Wednesday that following meetings between her ministry and the Ministry of Health & Wellness, she will be meeting with the various sporting organisations across the country, to discuss the restart of sports in Jamaica.
