Mmegi Online :: Clubs Threaten To Boycott League








Women Football Commission (WFC) chairperson Senki Sesinyi said the league could have started by now if there was no protest by clubs.

The clubs said they will not participate in the competition unless certain issues that rose last season are ironed out.

The clubs are not happy that they have not been given money for last season's awards.
They feel there are many issues the BFA need to explain before they start the league.

Sesinyi said they are currently trying to convince clubs to participate in the league.
The commission is yet,  to meet the BFA to discuss the clubs grievances. Sesinyi said the old BFA office told them that there is no money and now they can only pin their hopes on the new officials.

"I would really want us to play but if there is no money there is nothing we can do," he said.

Agreement Podi of Double Action denied that clubs are refusing to play but said there are certain things they are not happy about.

He accused BFA of treating them like children. Podi said BFA cannot expect them to start the league when they know that certain matters are pending.

"We want them to come and

explain a number of things for us," he said.

Podi said his team has won the league three times but they have not been given the trophy that they are supposed to keep for good. He said the league will only start after the club's grievances have been addressed.

Ntona Mmmolotsi of Prisons confirmed that clubs have refused to play in the league unless their grievances are addressed.

However, he said as an institutional club, Prisons does not subscribe to the idea.

He hopes the BFA will soon secure money for the women's game.

Manana's Katamelo Masilonyana is as hopeful as Mmolotsi. He said it is not true that clubs will not take part in the league.

They only want some things to be clarified. He hopes the new BFA committee will come up with a solution since it was the old officials who said there is no money. BFA chief executive officer Tosh Kgotlele said it will be unfortunate and immature for clubs not to take part in the league because there is no money.

"They should not play for money but for the love of the game," he said. Kgotlele said they are looking for sponsors for women football.
