As mentioned in previous communications, some Matchday One fixtures have been adjusted due to other games in other tournaments taking place at the same venues for such ties in the 2019 Bet9ja Royal Cup.
According to a press statement issued on behalf of the Local Organising Committee, LOC, by the Media and Communications Lead of the Royal Cup tourney, Jahrock Ujewe, these changes in time and venue become necessary to give all participating teams equal opportunity to compete and be treated fairly.
