Kathmandu, January 4

The All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) decision to give 20 per cent of the money collected from matchday tickets to the players has disappeared from its minute.

The central working committee meeting of ANFA, held on December 18, 2023, decided to stop the distribution of free passes during international games and to provide 20 per cent of the amount raised from ticket sales to the players.

The minutes of the decision from that meeting were forwarded by Kiran Rai, the General Secretary of ANFA, to the senior vice president, vice president, central members, and office bearers on January 1. However, the decision taken on December 18 is absent from it.

According to the statute of ANFA, minutes must be sent in writing to the members of the working committee within 15 days of the meeting. Accordingly, in the 17-point minute sent by Kiran Rai to the members of the working committee on Tuesday, the decision made by the working committee regarding proceeds from the matchday ticket being given to players has been removed.

The central members of ANFA have raised objections to this situation. They contend that the response received indicates that the minutes included discussions not addressed in the working committee meeting, while crucially omitting the matters that were decided upon.

However, ANFA spokesperson Suresh Shah has offered a different explanation, stating that the omission was the result of a typing mistake. According to Shah, the decision was not intentionally removed but was overlooked due to a typing error. Subsequently, the error was rectified, and the corrected minutes were resent.
