DPMM kicked out of MSL


The FA of Malaysia (FAM) have decided to omit Brunei from all M-League competitions next season, including the Super League, following the deregistration of their national football association because of technicalities.

The FAM vice-president, Datuk Che Mohd Jusoh, said that the FAM had no choice but to drop Brunei to avoid breaching any FIFA rules after being informed of the Brunei FA’s deregistration by their country’s Registrar of Societies.

“FIFA rules forbid any football organisation from including an unregistered or deregistered team in any competition,” he said after a special competition committee meeting here on Monday.

He added that with Brunei’s exit, the Super League would now feature 14 teams while Kuala Muda Naza had been given a walkover over Brunei in the first round of the FA Cup competition.

He added that the fixtures for the Super League competition would also be amended accordingly before the season kicks off on Jan 3.
