The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has sanctioned the Ann’s Grove United Football Club (AGU FC) for a no-show at their scheduled GFF Elite League match on Saturday, 31st March against Milerock FC at the No. 5 Ground, West Coast Berbice.
This sanction was activated in accordance with Rule 4.16 of the GFF Elite League Season III, which, states the following:
4.16 A No-show is when a team willfully does not appear at a game without a specific agreement approved by the GFF. The penalties for a No-show are as follows:
4.16.1 A 3-0 loss, a 3-point deduction from their standings and a League Fine of $200,000.
4.16.2 All fines and fees must be paid before the next scheduled match of the Club in the Elite League. If fines and fees are not paid within the prescribed time, the GFF may consider options on continued participation in the League.
4.16.3 A club may be expelled from the league if it accumulates two No-shows within one season.
A team unable to attend a scheduled game because of an accident, weather or “force majeure” should immediately notify the GFF. GFF will review each situation and a decision rendered.
It therefore has resulted in Milerock Football Club being awarded a 3-0 victory, while three points have been deducted from the AGU FC points tally on the Elite League Points Table. The AGU FC is also required to pay the fine of two hundred thousand Guyana dollars (G$200,000) before the next scheduled match this Friday.
