Benin Premier League Schedule

Benin Premier League Schedule

In terms of organizing Soccer tournaments and administrating them, African countries have interesting administrators and questionable schedules.
In Benin, the new premier League season kicked off on the 27th of December 2014. Only one game Buffles de Borgou vs Béké Bembèrèkè took place before the league took a two weeks break, it will resume on Sunday, January 11, 2015 where almost all the teams will be playing their 1st games of the season besides Buffles de Borgou and Béké Bembèrèkè who drew 1-1 on the 27th of December.

Was it necessary for the league to kick off on the 27th of December with only one game,  all to rest for 2 weeks?
