The San Pedro Pirates Football Club (FC) have confirmed that they are back in the game and will be participating in the Premier League of Belize’s Closing Season set to begin on Sunday, January 13th. The club had initially taken to social media on December 13, 2018, to inform their fans that due to the lack of sponsorship and support in San Pedro Town they would no longer participate in the Premiere League of Belize (PLB) Football Tournament. That no longer seems to be an issue, as the club has confirmed its participation for 2019.

Founder and owner of the San Pedro Pirates F.C, Emeliano Rivero told The San Pedro Sun that despite the controversy, he plans for the football club to continue in the PLB for many more years. The PLB Closing Season 2018-2019 will see eight teams competing for the championship. Teams include San Pedro Pirates F.C, Police United F.C, Belmopan Bandits, Verdes F.C, Assassins Altitude F.C, Belize Defense Force, Wagiya Sporting Club, and Punta Gorda Freedom Fighters F.C.
