Kedah’s league status in question as MFL want more information

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Football League (MFL) want Kedah to submit additional information before any decision is made regarding their participation status in the 2024-2025 Super League season.

MFL chief executive officer Datuk Stuart Ramalingam said more details from Kedah will be discussed in the quarterly meeting of the board of directors of the local football governing body on March 6.

He said the extra information was a follow-up action by the club from the north after the First Instance Body (FIB) gave them until March 5 to resolve the team’s salary arrears issue.

“We will inform about Kedah’s position after receiving these details later,” he said.

Kedah reportedly owes players’ salary for four months since last season.

The MFL can take punitive action such as point deductions and deny the national licence to compete in the Super League if the problem persists.

Previously, Melaka, Sarawak United and Perak were subjected to point deductions before the start of the season.

Meanwhile, Stuart also said interview session between FIB and representatives of the four M3 Amateur Football League (AFL) clubs that applied for an extraordinary licence to participate in the 2024-2025 Super League competition scheduled to start on May 10, has been postponed from this week to Monday (March 4) due to time constraint.

MFL re-opened the extraordinary licence application for the M3 club in January following the decision of the FIB and the MFL Club Licensing Appeal Committee (AB) who rejected Kelantan’s National Licence application to compete in the 2024-2025 Super League following financial problems.

The MFL will select only the best club that meet the set criteria to fill the 14th slot after the absence of Kelantan. — Bernama
