Sports Super League Football tourney to resume from 29 November

The much awaited second phase of the Super League is scheduled to resume from 29 November with Up country Lions facing Defenders FC at Sugathadasa Stadium. This fixture was originally slated to kick off on 2 May, but after few COVID-19 positive cases were detected from the Defenders FC camp, the Organizing Committee were forced to postpone this fixture to a future date. 

After a two-month international break, FSL re-scheduled the match for a later date but the encounter was once again postponed considering the prevailing COVID-19 situation in the country at that time. Both teams have already played two games each, with Upcountry Lions placed 5th on the points table with 1 win and 1 draw, while Defenders FC are still struggling to find their first win with 2 draws and are ranked 6th.

 Sea Hawks are leading the points table with three wins, while Red Star FC are second with two wins out of three matches. The Super League will play host to a single legbased format, where the competition will be limited to 45 games, with 9 games per club. The team at the top of the table at the end of the 45 games will be crowned Champions of Sri Lanka’s first ever Professional Football Tournament, the Super League. (MS)
