ANFA to discuss the issue of NSL during its executive committee meeting

By a Staff Reporter

Kathmandu – The All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) is ready to discuss the future of Nepal Super League during its upcoming executive committee meeting.

During an informal meeting of NSL organisers with ANFA office bearers including its newly elected President Pankaj Nembang on Sunday, the ANFA leadership assured the NSL representatives of taking necessary decision after its executive committee meeting.

The future of NSL hangs in the balance after four top-tier clubs and ANFA Vice President Bir Bahadur Khadka decided to scrap the agreement with NSL. Sudeep Sharma, the CEO of Nepal Sports and Events Management which organizes the NSL, said that they held the meeting with ANFA officials to sort out the uncertainty regarding the NSL, a franchise based league which did not go well with some A Division clubs.

“ANFA leadership told us that the last agreement had some flaws and they were in favour of signing a new agreement with some amendments,” said Sharma, adding, “ANFA has assured us that they will discuss the matter during the executive committee meeting on July 18.”

ANFA General Secretary Kiran Rai said that the agreement with NSL was scrapped due to the recommendation of clubs, but that doesn’t mean ANFA can sign a new agreement with NSL.
