Sierra Leone’s top flight has been cancelled due to the novel Coronavirus outbreak, the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has confirmed.

The decision to annul the 2019/2020 football season was unanimously taken by the Premier League Board (PLB) in consultation with the SLFA at a meeting held on Wednesday (15 July 2020) in Freetown, with representatives of all 14 Premier League clubs. 

The meeting resolved to cancel the entire season with no champions declared, and with the same teams for next season.

The league was suspended last March following a directive from the Government Health Agencies after the outbreak of COVID-19.
