According to Abdulia, they understand the reason why some of the big name clubs are still struggling with their registration but admitted that they are making progress to meet the Board requirement before the league kick-off.
“If the clubs do not meet the benchmark we will return the money to the government. However, we understand some of the reasons why the delay in registration especially the transformation of these clubs to Company Limited by Grantee. But we are helping them to achieve this, and they are making progress to meet the Board requirement,” Abdulia said.
