Selangor FC mull action after MFL fine

KUALA LUMPUR, June 26 — Selangor FC are examining and studying all appropriate channels to take further action after being fined RM100,000 and deducted three points for the 2024/2025 Super League competition by the Malaysian Football League (MFL) today.

The Red Giants took note of MFL’s decision regarding the fine imposed for not turning up for the Charity Shield match at the Sultan Ibrahim Stadium in Iskandar Puteri, Johor, last month.

“The club has actually requested a postponement of the match after the criminal acid attack on Mohamad Faisal Abdul Halim on May 5, and several other incidents involving national football players, but the request was rejected,” it said in a statement today.

Besides the fine, the MFL board of directors also decided that the 14th Super League match between Selangor and JDT at the Petaling Jaya City Council Stadium will be played without spectators.

The three-point cut saw Selangor, which is currently second in the Super League with nine points, fall to fifth place.

Following Faisal’s acid attack last month, Selangor insisted on prioritising the safety of the team apart from taking a serious view on all forms of threats and will not compromise on any issue related to the matter.

The result saw JDT given a ‘walkover’ victory with a score of 3-0 and got three points for Super League action.

MFL also said that the RM100,000 fine imposed on Selangor will be donated to a charity to be decided later.
