FAs warned over non-payment of salary
Published on: Saturday, January 16, 2016

PETALING JAYA: State football associations may lose their club licence if they fail to resolve the payment of salary, starting next year.

Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) chief executive officer, Kevin Ramalingam said for a start, football clubs would be given warnings with the deduction of three league points if they failed to pay players' salary, starting this season.

"We will give them the final warning, if there is a problem with salary payment while team points in the league will be deducted. If the problem persists, it will affect the licence of the clubs.

"When the club licence is withdrawn, they will not be able to compete next season. If they don't adopt the right structure, they will be left behind and club licensing will be a problem for them, and the team will drop out," he told reporters when met at Wisma FAM in Kelana Jaya, Friday.

Kevin said FMLLP would be meeting state football associations with salary payment problems next week.


He said the problem of salary payment not only involved the Malaysian Armed Forces, and FMLLP would also be meeting several other teams with the same problem.

"It's too sensitive for me to name other teams having a similar problem. We will discuss and find solutions.

They also need to know that they will face deduction of league points. – Bernama
