The Head of the Libyan Football Federation (LFF) Abdelhakim Al-Shalmani said the final stage of the Football League for this season (the six-team stage that determines which one bags the trophy) could be held outside Libya, telling reporters that Qatar, UAE and Morocco said they were ready to host the league's final stage.

Al-Shalmani said Qatari stadiums could be the pick, adding that Doha had asked for the matches to end in the first half of June as the country’s World Cup 2022 preparations continue ahead of the kickoff in November.

“This proposal aims to avoid the issue of having no sufficient number of stadiums for the league's finals and to give equal opportunities for all teams, not to mention that it will help improve Libyan football’s image overseas.” Al-Shalmani added.

Libyan Football League’s first stage is now at round 15 with only three more to go, falling short of the matches of Al-Ittihad and Al-Ahly Tripoli, which are now playing at CAF Confederation Cup.
