Seychelles top-flight set for dramatic finish

Seychelles top-flight set for dramatic finish

The league championship in the Seychelles will be decided on Friday as the 2019-20 campaign finally comes to what could be a thrilling end.

Seychelles were the first COSAFA nation to restart their championship back in early July, and is now set for some final day drama when La Passe take on Light Stars on Friday.

Victory for La Passe will hand them the championship, but any other result will see Foresters crowned winners of the league.

The latter have 46 points, but have completed their match programme having spurned the chance to win the league at the weekend when they went down 4-2 to Le Passe.

Cote d’Or are in second place with 45 points but have also completed all their games, which means third-place Le Passe (44 points from 21 matches) are the only other side still in contention.

Le Passe won the last of their four league titles in 2009, while Foresters are seeking a first ever championship.

The Seychelles league has traditionally be dominated by St Louis Suns United (15 titles) and St Michel United (13) since it was first played in 1979, but has become more competitive in recent years.

Twelve sides make up the top division, Victoria City at the bottom having won one and lost 21 of their 22 games this campaign.
