Sloga 1934 and Rosoman 83 were hopping to get the luck on their side in today’s draw at FFM’s headquarters, but the draw got cancelled. Pitu Guli announced that they won’t be competing in the second tier in the new season so both third league clubs got promoted without a draw.
The draw in the group West was made. Fortuna, Besa (DD) and Veleshta were the three participating teams with Veleshta being the lucky team drawn to win promotion.
All three newly promoted are back in the second league after a long time. Vinica based Sloga 1934 last time played at this level in the season 2001/02. It will be their 10th time in the second tier.
Rosoman 83 for the second time in their history reaches the second level. Their last and only appearance was back in 1997/98. the club is based in the village of Rosoman.
Veleshta is from the village with the same name. They have played two back to back seasons in the second league in 1998/99 and 1999/00 so this will be their third.
Both second league groups are now completed. The draw for the fixtures will take place on Monday. This is how the groups will look in the new season:
