The Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) has announced that the league will not kickoff this weekend as earlier announced due to some logistical challenges.
SRFA vice-general secretary Kingsly Simbeye said the proposed date for kickoff is now May 3.
He said the main reason for the postponement is that only two Premier Division teams Cobbe Barracks and Blantyre United have registered.
“The other reason is that we would like to meet the referees to clear some outstanding issues and then plan for the new season,” said Simbeye.
The development could again affect the harmonised calendar as the plan was that all the second-tier leagues and the Super League should run concurrently.
“We have therefore extended the registration period by two weeks and hopefully, the teams will come up to register or else we will just have to start with the teams that would have completed the process,” said Simbeye.
He played down a suggestion that the new requirement that clubs should be paying three-quarters [K90 000] of the K120 000 registration fee, could have affected registration.
“I do not think so because all the clubs were part to the agreement during the meeting we had and there were no objections,” said Simbeye.
