Defence Force was declared the winner of the 2019/2020 T&T Pro League yesterday, after a decision by the League to take preventative measures, due to the deadly COVID19 (coronavirus) which has now reached a total of nine cases.

Yesterday the League in a release said, “Given the existing situation with regard to the worldwide pandemic, COVID19 (coronavirus), the League has taken the decision to declare the Defence Force Football Club the 2020 League champions. The decision was taken in light of the fact that we will not be able to complete the League anytime soon. At present, we now have nine affected citizens reported and it is more than likely that this will grow in numbers over the coming weeks.”

It said also: “The League is of the view that this is the best decision to take under the circumstances and extends congratulations to the Defence Force Football Club. We also continue to pray for our nation at this time.”

Currently the Army Coast Guard Combination team leads the 11-team standings with 42 points after 17 matches. They enjoy a comfortable seven-point advantage on their closest rival Terminix La Horquetta Rangers on 35 points in 17 games, with Point Fortin Civic, W Connection- the multiple times winners, and Morvant Caledonia United securing third, fourth and fifth on the table respectively.
