FESFUT Competition Committee Denies Al Águila’s Removal from National Classic
The FESFUT Competition Committee has informed Al Águila that they cannot be removed from the upcoming National Classic against FAS at the renowned Cuscatlán stadium. It is important to note that the Licensing Commission has not granted any authorization for such a decision.
Scheduled Match Details
The official program of the first division has scheduled the match to take place on November 22 at the Cuscatlán stadium. The game will kick off at 8:00 p.m. and ticket prices range from $5 to $20.
A Controversial Decision
This decision by the Competition Committee marks a departure from their previous practice of not scheduling matches at the Cuscatlán stadium. This situation has occurred before, with Firpo attempting to relocate matches involving Alianza and FAS. Now, it is Águila’s turn to face a similar challenge.
Óscar Giralt, the representative of Águila in the first division, expressed his dissatisfaction with the notification received from the Competition Committee. In a statement on his X account, Giralt emphasized the role of sports federations in facilitating and promoting fair competition, rather than complicating it. He called for the resignation of committee members who lack leadership capacity or decision-making authority. Giralt also criticized the economic impact of the committee’s decisions on clubs, highlighting the suspension of the tournament and the resulting financial losses. He concluded by stating that this time, the club will not remain idle and will take appropriate action.
