Sepak takraw: K11 ready to meet Sports Ministry, Commissioner

10/06/2021 06:21 PM

KOTA BHARU, June 10 -- The 11 affiliates who pulled out from the Malaysian Sepak Takraw Federation (PSM) are ready to meet the Youth and Sports Ministry and Sports Commissioner to resolve the crisis at the national level.

President of Gabungan Sepak Takraw Kelantan (Gastak) Zuraidin Abdullah, who is representing the 11 affiliates or known as ‘K11’, said they were also prepared to hold a meeting with the Asian Sepak Takraw Federation (ASTAF).

“The K11 is always ready to discuss with the Sports Commissioner to be an intermediary to refine and identify proposals to find solutions to issues faced by PSM.

“In fact, the Youth and Sports Minister himself has taken note of the issues faced by PSM. We respect his view that the crisis cannot be handled simplistically and that all parties need to be open to finding a thorough approach,” he said when contacted by Bernama today.

Previously, ASTAF expelled PSM from the parent body while former PSM president Datuk Seri Ahmad Ismail was handed a 15-year ban from all sepak takraw activities.

Zuraidin said the K11 was also ready to offer its commitment to rebuilding the sport of sepak takraw through the establishment of a new entity which, he added was a solution that should be considered rationally by the Sports Commissioner and ministry.   

He also said the decision to set up the new entity was made by K11 at a meeting that was held about 24 hours after Ahmad announced his resignation as PSM president last Friday.
