Clubs warned to adhere to NCC rules

By Sunil Sharma

All clubs participating in this season's National Club Championship have been strongly advised to follow the rules and regulations of the competition.

The call comes from Fiji Football Association after some clubs despite qualifying for the competition last season, opted to pull out in the last minute.

Fiji FA chief executive Bob Kumar told FijiLive that they will not entertain any excuses by the clubs and if any club chooses to opt out or default its matches then strict disciplinary action will be taken on officials of the respective club.

"The competition rules are there and all clubs should strictly adhere to that and those that are found breaching rules will simply be given heavy penalties," said Kumar.

"Last year when the finals were shifted, some clubs from the Western Division pulled out citing financial reasons but this time around we will not entertain any excuses because all clubs should be financially viable to compete on the national level."

Meanwhile, districts which failed to conduct or complete their local league competition will be taken to task by the parent body.

According to Kumar, the Board of Control in its next meeting will discuss this issue and come up with some decisions against the respective districts.

"Local League competition should be strictly played so all players get a chance to be selected for district teams. Fiji FA has been strongly emphasising and promoting this but it is just sad to note that districts are not adhering. Certainly some form of action will be taken by the Board," Kumar concluded.

The zonal playoffs of the 2012 Kriz Sign National Club Championship will be played this weekend in Suva and Nadi.
