NNA – Al-Ansar waited 14 years to win its 14th title in the General Lebanese Football Championship League, and consolidate its record, by beating its traditional rival Al-Nijmeh 2-1 (first half 1-1), in a joint match that took place this afternoon at the Fouad Chehab Sports Complex in Jounieh at the end of the last fifth round of the 61st General League.

Al-Ansar deserved its victory, knowing that a draw was enough for them to be crowned, whereby its players were able to absorb the strong entry of their rivals in the match.

Thus, the General League came to an end within an exceptional season in which foreign players were missed due to the economic crisis that hit the country, after the cancellation of last season due to the repercussions of the unprecedented protests of October 17, 2019, and the outbreak of the Corona pandemic.
