"The second leg of Somalia's division A soccer championship will be on halt before September 14 and that is because of the Ramadan. During that period, the General Daa'uud cup will be played in accordance with our annual work-plans. This means that the SFF is committed to holding competitions one after another." secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab said in his press statement Sunday.

Meanwhile, the secretary General noted that participating clubs of the country's division A championship have stepped up training sessions and preparations for the second leg of the tournament to be resumed on 14th of September.
