WINDHOEK, 29 AUG (NAMPA) – The Namibia Premier League (NPL) has postponed its Board of Governors (BoG) meeting which was scheduled for Saturday, to September, in order to allow the finalisation of a financial audit.
In a letter addressed to the chairpersons of NPL clubs on Thursday and signed by the NPL’s Chief Executive Officer, Harald Fülle, the clubs were advised that the meeting will no longer take place as scheduled.
Speaking to Nampa on Thursday, Fülle confirmed the postponement, saying a new date will be set and the meeting will definitely take place in September as the audit is expected to be completed by 14 September.
He also confirmed that the Annual Ordinary Congress (AOC) has also been postponed.
“This postponement will also have an effect on the start of the NPL season as the congress is the one that endorses the league’s season,” he explained.
He further rubbished suggestions that the postponement was as a result of the letter written by several football clubs, led by Tigers, who were challenging the date set by league for the BoG and AOC, saying the manner in which the league was setting up the two meetings was not in line with the NPL’s constitution.
In early August, Tigers wrote to the NPL, accusing the league of being non-compliant with several articles of the NPL constitution, including Article 37.3, which says ‘The chairman shall compile the agenda after receiving points for discussion from members of the BoG’.
