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?

Read the full report on the frontpage of The Malay Mail today.

HD says: Sigh!


  1. sedih. SPRM dah leh start siasat dah ni

  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.

  5. Good Night
    I wanted to comment on your article "KLFA in crisis" because we are people dedicated to international football and we know that the Kuala Lumpur FA football team gets a new sponsors from the city of Odessa(Ukraine)related to the Chernomorest football team.There is a Ukrainian team player who has been transferred to KLFA team.

    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.
    We let our email in case you want to contact us.
    Best Regards.

  6. KLFA needs new management.. so sad about this team.. im such a big fan of KL until now..

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties. This is very damaging to the image of the League and the brand that we are trying to build."
It remains unclear which articles written by Vijhay are said to be "overly critical" of the Malaysian League.
Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
It is best if FMLLP explained its definition of being "overly critical". 
While the bo…
