GEORGE TOWN: It would not be a big surprise if Penang are unable to put up a team in the Super League competition next season.
It is common knowledge that the FA of Penang (FAP) are in deep financial woes. The players have not been paid their salaries for the past several months.
And the FAP’s financial difficulties plumbed new depths yesterday when they had to suspend indefinitely all their domestic league competitions.
It was the first time since its inception in the 1950s that the competitions were halted because of financial reasons and it affected more than 60 club sides. The suspended tournaments were the three main league divisions, the junior league and Under-18 competitions.
