The Libyan Football Federation (LFF) has announced the postponement of the league competition for this season for an unspecified date.

This came in a statement issued by the LFF committee for organizing competitions on Saturday. The committee attributed this postponement to a shortage in the stadiums approved for hosting the league competitions, especially in Tripoli, which includes six competing clubs.

"The committee understands the rage of some clubs over this decision, especially those that were informed of the dates of the first round competitions scheduled to take place on Monday." The statement confirmed.

But it said that for reasons of public interest and the success of the tournament, it decided to postpone the games until the problem is solved based on the report of the Stadium Inspection Committee, which started its work a month ago under the chairmanship of the former international referee, Nasreddin Qurain.

The head of the competition's organizing committee, Abdel Mawla Al-Maghrabi, ensured that the games would not be delayed for long, maybe for just a week, noting that they are awaiting a technical report on the state of some stadiums in the western region, especially in Tripoli.

Al-Maghrabi mentioned Ali al-Zaqouzi stadium, which is adjacent to the Tripoli International Stadium. The stadium will be under maintenance work until the beginning of next year in order to be able to open its doors once again.
