Due the late start to the season teams are expected to play two games per weekend; that is Saturday and Sunday for the first four weeks.
Speaking to Voice Sport this week division 1 chairman Michael Belebese said the situation was beyond their control.
He said they were supposed to start the league early August unfortunately things did not go according to plan.
“We blame first division league for all this because they finished their games late due to some pending cases.
We could not start the season before they finish because we have to fixture a team relegated from their division.
There is also shortage of grounds as most of them are not in good condition and we cannot use them during rainy seasons.” Said Belebese.
He said they intend to finish the season by the second week of April next year so that they can give teams going for promotional play offs enough time to prepare.
Belebese thanked City Council for allowing them to use the stadium in the morning before premier league games starts.
Ghetto Rhinos FC Coach Ricardo Marape said this is going to strain players.
He said their level of fitness is down because they only train once due to work commitments.
He said if players can pick injuries in their first game, then they will not have enough time to recover.
“This is too much for us. Players are going to be under a lot of pressure.
The committee and club chairman should have involved a technical expect before coming up with the final fixtures.
This is happening for the third time,” said Marape.
Marape further said it was important that BFA officials attend all the division one matches to monitor the situation.
