KLFA in crisis

UPDATE May 31: Former KLFA president and KL mayor Elyas Omar says he is "horrified".

Former KL players says it is time for a "clean up".

And KL to lose big time if they pull out from the M-League.

----------------

The sponsors for Premier League outfit KL have stated their intention of terminating their RM2 million contract with the city side.

Rising Sun Travel & Tours sent a letter to KLFA on Monday but KLFA have refused to accept the letter as there is no proper explanation to why the sponsors want to suddenly quit the team.

Allegations of match-fixing heighten following the recent KL-Sime Darby match where fans placed a banner that read "Bookie 5 Fans 0" and "Bookie Detected" during the match. KL lost 5-0.

Tired with the inconsistency and allegations, the FA are expected to meet and decide if they are to pull out from the league next season.

The team, who saw its glory days in the late 80s and 1990s, are placed 11th out of 12 in the standings.

Surprisingly the players have not received their full payment since April but seem to be pretty 'cool' about it. Are the players being threatened and abused?

  2. This is a result of choosing an incompetent management team. The management in the 80's is very professional, they have the passion and lust for the game.
    The current management is nowhere near the management in the 80's era. So whay are you waiting? Please resign en block. We fans have the right to ask for it.

  3. This is your first test KJ. Please call up the KL players and find out if they had been paid their monthly salary on time. Only then integrity and transparency will come into place for KLFA and their officials

  4. Being as a KL fan, I'm really sad with the current situation. I don't care if the team will be relegated to the FAM League. What I want, and of course all the City fans want is to have a good management team that can bring back the glorious days of KLFA. I personally reject any politicians helming any post in the KLFA managemnet. Let the corporate figures, businessmen tycoons take over the KLFA.

    We wanted to know whether the Malaysian press is no news of this.If not we can give you more information about this.
    We also wanted to know if it had been published in the Malaysian press that the Kuala Lumpur FA football team had bought the square to play the Super League season 2013-2014.

    We hope you can inform us as son as posible.
    Thanks.

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.

Why?

It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.

UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
