ANFA requests AFC to waive penalty charged against it


KATHMANDU: Few days after Asian Football Confederation (AFC) decided to penalize All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) with a USD 6,000 for violating AFC’s code of conduct while organizing the match between Nepal and Bangladesh at Dashrath Stadium last year, ANFA has asked the AFC to review its decision.

The ANFA has slapped the fine for the lax security arrangement during a match of AFC Challenge Cup 2014 (Q). A meeting of the Disciplinary Committee of AFC held in Kuala Lumpur on May 14 had decided to fine ANFA citing the poor security management during the AFC Challenge Cup Qualifier game between Nepal and Bangladesh.

Citing that all security measures were implemented to restrict untoward incidents inside the Dasharath stadium, the ANFA asked the AFC to review its decision to penalize ANFA. ANFA send an e-mail to AFC requesting the Regional Football to remove its sanction.

“If we could get a decision in our favour, it will be a good lesson, and an eye opener for our football lovers not to misbehave during any international match as it could cost a lot of money for the association,” reports quoted Chief Executive Officer of ANFA Indraman Tuladhar as saying.

As a part of AFC rule, one can apply for a plea within 10 days of being notified of the punishment. The ANFA should hear the decision with 15 days. If the plea is rejected the association have to pay USD 6,000 within 30 days.

Nepali spectators were found guilty of throwing a mobile phone, a lighter and water bottles during the Nepal- Bangladesh match of AFC Challenge Cup 2014 (Q).

If they the decision goes against ANFA, then it would be the second time the association pays the price for the crowd misbehavior. They were fined Rs 10,000 some four years ago in an AFC U-19 match.
