‘We are going to the High court to get interpretation for article 39, which states that a club fined has within 14 days to settle payment or will forfeit subsequent matches.

‘We are aware that Aduana Stars couldn’t meet the deadline for their payment, hence have to declared losers for two matches they played against Heart of Lions and Medeama,’ the General Manager for King Faisal told Metro fm.
