Football: SeyPearl Transitional League St Louis lead Mahé division one ranking |06 June 2019

La Passe on top of the Inner Islands league table

Undefeated St Louis and La Passe are presently leading the rankings in the ongoing SeyPearl Transitional Leagues division one for Mahé and the Inner Islands respectively, while Real Maldives and Bel Air are the division two and three leaders.

The Transitional league hosted by the Seychelles Football Federation (SFF) is a preparation for the teams following the switch from a February-to-November to an August-to-May schedule.

The decision was taken last year by the SFF and it is also in line with the Confederation of African Football (Caf) decision to run its competitions, namely the Total Caf Champions League and the Caf Confederation Cup in the same format – also switched from a February-to-November schedule to an August-to-May programme.

The transitional competitions are being played in five leagues, namely Mahé divisions one, two and three, along with Inner Island divisions one and two.

For the new season which will kick off in August, the leagues will also be played under new names, compared to the traditional league division one, two and three.

The first division league will be now called the Seypearl Premier League, while the second division has been re-named the Seypearl Championship One.

Third division football will now be played under the name Seypearl Championship Two.

Northern Dynamo who have also accumulated 18 points are currently second overall, but the Glacis-based side have played one match more.
