2003 ANAPROF

ANAPROF 2003 is the 2003 season of the Asociación Nacional Pro Fútbol (ANAPROF), the Panamanian professional football league. The season started on February 26, 2003 with the Torneo Apertura Bellsouth 2003 (Bellsouth Opening Tournament 2003), and ended on October 26, 2003 with the Torneo Clausura Bellsouth 2003 (Bellsouth Closing Tournament 2003). The champion of both the opening and closing tournaments were Tauro; therefore, for the second time in history, Tauro were crowned ANAPROF champions without the need to play a grand final.

  • For the closing championship, the final was played in a single match format.
