Kashif and Shanghai complains to CONCACAF over unfair treatment by GFF/GFA
Football: After last year’s confusion with the staging of 2 Major football tournaments at the same time, the organisers of the Kashif and Shanghai football organization is not taking any chances and are going all out to protect the tournament they have nurtured for over 23 years. Co-founder of the Kashif and Shanghai organization, Aubrey Major has written the highest regional football authority CONCACAF, complaining that their tournament is being unfairly targeted and faces postponement to Easter of 2014.
Major is accusing the executive of the GFF and the GFA of vindictiveness after being asked to apply for the holding of their tournament.
Major is peeved that after his organisations application, there has been no word from the GFF and he says, time is running out.
Shanghai told CONCACAF he is writing to them as a last resort since he has to explore all options. He also warned that the Kashif and Shanghai organization will not take this latest action lying down.
The GFA six team qualifiers got off to a slow start on Sunday after there was a no show from the Pele football team which put a damper on the event.
Pele FC wants the rules to be applied evenly by the GFA. Pele’s contending that they should have automatically qualified for the Super six playoff with Alpha, since they finished second in the qualifying tournament last year.
GFA President Vernon Burnett however said that this can’t be so and the GFA is working by the guideline of the GFF.
Pele was set to play Riddim Squad in the triple header.
The opening game saw Western Tigers getting the better of Fruta Conquerors, while Camptown and Santos played to a draw. Games continue on Wednesday at the Tucville ground.
