Felda United will be officially axed from Malaysia Super League next season after failing to submit their audited accounts.
The decision was announced by Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam on Monday, as reported by the New Straits Times.
According to Kevin, the Football Association of Malaysia denied the license to Felda, who has reportedly not audited their accounts since 2014, due to the club’s failure to submit their accounts.
“A decision had to be made by our (FMLLP) board as Felda did not comply to regulations for the 2018 season, where teams must have a club license to play in the Super League,” said Kevin.
“This decision will serve as a lesson to other clubs. It’s high time for teams to be serious when it comes to management and also in making sure they have met requirements for a club license.”
