The initial phase of the Debmarine Premier League wrapped up over the weekend, with all 16 teams completing 15 matches each.

The first round encountered a few challenges, including last-minute changes to fixtures, delayed kick-off times, and match postponements. These unforeseen circumstances were not well received by the fans.

One notable incident during the first round was the Orlando Pirates and Life Fighters game, which was unable to proceed as scheduled due to a power outage at the Independence Stadium. NFA President Robert Shimoshili expressed his regret over this unfortunate issue.

The second round of the league is set to resume next year after the African Cup of Nations tournament in Ivory Coast in February.
