19 August 2021, San Jose-Costa Rica:- The management of the Verdes Football Club (Verdes FC) hereby takes this opportunity to inform its fans and the general public that its Scotiabank Concacaf League participation has come to an end for 2021. Yesterday the club played Santos de Gyapiles and after 90 minutes of official play the game ended in favor of Santos by a score of five (5) goals to one (1).
While the management makes no excuses for the results of the match there were many factors which contributed to the loss including the fact that the Premier League of Belize (PLB) is presently inactive due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the opportunity to engage in quality international friendlies as part of its preparation was not an option. The management of the club however will assess the club's performance and make the necessary adjustments to ensure that future participation by the club in the Scotiabank Concacaf League keeps improving and is representative of a worthy Belizean League champion.
Lastly the Verdes FC would like to thank the Football Federation of Belize (FFB), Club Owners, Government officials, the club sponsors and its loyal and dedicated fans for their tremendous support to the club. Due to the outpouring of support our club was able to participate, compete and meet our international obligations something we are most grateful and appreciative of.
