Equatorial Guinea Top-flight championship gets to business end

The Equatorial Guinea men’s flagship championship has reached the final six phase after an exciting season in which matches were played mostly in Bata and Malabo.

Last weekend the first phase of the championship rounded off with Leones Vegetarianos emerging winners of Pool A. The Lions amassed 47 points from 22 games while Futuro Kings won Pool B with a massive nine points gap from Inter Litorial who finished in the second spot.

As inked in the regulations of the championship before the start of the season, the top three teams from the two pool will face off in a title play-off phase to determine the next champions of Equatorial Guinea.

Officials of FEGUIFOOT have suggested May 7 as the date for the start of the playoffs and the playoffs matches will be played in Bata.
