Waterhouse FC face Arcahai in round 16 of the CONCACAF league
Arcahai were supposed to face Verdes of Belize in a one game elimination match last Tuesday but got the bye after Verdez were forced to withdraw with more than half their team stricken with COVID-19.
The Haitians are set to face Waterhouse at the stadium east facilities next Thursday, November 5 th after the Ministry of Health and Wellness gave the game the go-ahead on Tuesday.
A release by the Jamaica Football Federation on Tuesday announced that the Ministry of Health “has declared that it has no objection to the Scotiabank CONCACAF League game to be hosted by Waterhouse at Stadium East Field on November 5.”
The released added “Waterhouse must ensure that all health protocols are adhered to in training and at the match. The MOHW reserves the right to observe training and the game to ensure adherence.”
Waterhouse FC are hoping to improve on last year’s results when they were eliminated 2-0 at the quarter-final stage by Honduras’ Motagua F.C.
