After becoming the first country in the world to abandon their league, the league management body of Mauritius has said abandoning the league was the cheapest option.
The league body said they had decided to not declare a champion as some clubs were ready to go to court.
Therefore, the decision was a more cheaper option for them.
It will be remembered that the league which was suspended in March with five matches to spare, was ended abruptly some days ago.
The MFA secretary-general Paul Didier Gnanapragass had said ”following our previous correspondence dated 19th of March 2020, on the suspension of all football activities until further notice due to the Covid-19 Outbreak, we would like to inform you, as-to-date, about the definitive cessation of all national and regional football leagues in the national interest,”
”After considering the opinion of each member and mainly in consultation with the authorities during the past week, it has been, hence, decided that this current season 2019/20 ends up with immediate effect, resulting thus to the irretrievable abandonment of all championships at any level of competition.”
According to the MFA president, Samir Sobha , only three teams disagreed with the decision hence te decision to cancel the league became valid.
Prior to the 2019/2020 league suspension and cancellation, Grande Riviere Sud Est Wanderers led the table on goal difference ahead of Bolton City.
