The Chairman of the Libyan Football Federation (LFF) Jamal Al-Jaafari said the LFF has gotten only three weeks to try to provide the needed funding for the Libyan Soccer League's teams or else this season could be canceled.

He added that to specify a date for the Super Cup match between Al-Ahli Tripoli and Al-Hilal is tied to the date of the beginning of the Libyan Soccer League because the Super Cup Match should be one week before the kick off of the league.

In the Sunday meeting of the LFF General Assembly that took place in Tripoli in the presence of representatives for the 28 clubs taking part in the 2016/2017 season, the clubs rejected to play in the coming season for not having the necessary financial support.

With such a decision by the Libyan teams and the General Assembly, setting up a date for the start of the Libyan Soccer League for this season enters an even murkier stage given the current status of sports in Libya and the economic and financial crises the country is going through.
