NSL auction to go ahead as planned on Friday

By a Staff Reporter

Kathmandu – Nepal Super League’s auction will go ahead as planned on Friday, informed the organizer of the league Nepal Sports and Event Management (NSEM).

NSEM CEO Sudeep Sharma confirmed that the auction will be held as per the schedule. ANFA’s General Secretary Indra Man Tuladhar had reportedly requested NSEM to halt the auction after consulting with A Division League clubs. However, Sharma said that they haven’t received any letter in this regard yet. He therefore said that the auction will move ahead as planned before.

According to NSEM, the auction will begin at 10 am on Friday.

Eight clubs of the A Division League had issued joint statements on Sunday and Wednesday requesting ANFA to hold discussion with the concerned parties. The A Division clubs had written a joint letter to ANFA on Sunday requesting the football governing body of Nepal not to allow the players to play any other league while they were affiliated to the clubs.

Stating that ANFA had snubbed their request, the eight clubs issued another statement on Wednesday. The clubs said that their attention had been drawn to the news that the players signed by those clubs were being auctioned without the permission of the clubs. This, according to the clubs, is a foul-play against the future of the clubs.

The joint statement further said that such activities would have a negative impact on the country’s football and therefore urged all concerned stakeholders not to get indulged in suh activities.
