All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) has decided to cancel the agreement with Nepal Super League and it's organizers; Nepal Sports and Events Management Pvt Ltd. With this cancellation, the existence of the franchise league has come into question yet again.
ANFA committee under Karma Tsering Sherpa had granted NSEM new dates to organize the second edition from September 10 to October 11.
A meeting between ANFA and the disgruntled A Division club on Friday decided to cancel the agreement with NSL. The meeting decided to recommend the cancellation of the agreement with the conclusion that there were errors in some points of the agreement with NSL.
"There were many errors in the agreement", said ANFA vice-president Bir Bahadur Khadka. "The agreement specified it's existence until four years from the day it was signed but the agreement date was not specified in the agreement papers." The agreement paper was signed and approved by former ANFA president Karma Tsering Sherpa.
The franchises had also agreed on helping to develop the game in their respective provinces. But the work has not been done according to the agreement, hence cancellation of the agreement said Khadka.
The tournament will not be conducted on the dates given by ANFA. Khadka further assured that new dates will be fixed after meeting with the franchises and finding an agreement.
Furthermore, ANFA will sit down with the NSL organizers and the franchises to settle the issue on Sunday or Monday and try to come under new agreement according to Khadka.
There were already a lot of talks about NSL from the moment Pankaj Bikram Nemwang was elected ANFA president. After the cancellation of the agreement, the existence of the franchise league in Nepal goes into uncertainties.
