PETALING JAYA: Cash-strapped Kuala Lumpur FA (KLFA) are seeking legal action to resolve their dispute with their wantaway sponsor.

The City boys, who have been reduced to playing in the second-tier of the M-League – Premier League, suffered a major setback when their sponsor requested to terminate its partnership before the season ends.

KL are second from bottom with 14 points from 19 matches and on the brink of being relegated to the third tier – FAM League – with three more matches to play.

KLFA president Datuk Astaman Abdul Aziz said that their legal team would contact their wantaway sponsor.

Astaman said he was unhappy with the sponsor’s decision to quit the team and “we will proceed with legal action”.

“We had an agreement ... and there’s a non-performance by the sponsor,” Astaman said after a meeting at the Cheras Stadium on Monday.

“I cannot comment further on this matter as our legal team has taken over. I hope the sponsor will have a sense of decorum and this matter will end amicably.”
