Martyr's Memorial A Division League runner-up Machhindra Football Club on Thursday declared that it was not associated with any committee in violation of the ANFA statute.

Club secretary Shyamsundar Shrestha made such claim by issuing a press release following a meeting of the club held under club vice-president Sunil Shrestha. The club further clarified that it will participate in all programs and tournaments conducted by the All Nepal Football Association (ANFA).
Machhindra, along with three other clubs, had been boycotting ANFA's programs and tournaments demanding that ANFA provide it the runner-up prize money and preparation budget from last season, among others.

A coordinating committee known as Football Club Coordination Committee (FCCC), comprised central committee members of the four agitating clubs, had been pressing ANFA to release the budget.

Instead, ANFA had banned Machhindra from participation in programs and tournaments organized or recognized by ANFA for 2071 BS until it provided written clarification that it was not associated with any committee.

"Our central committee had not decided about associating with FCCC. That was one of the reasons of conflict inside the club," said secretary Shrestha. "But we were required to give written clarification to ANFA for getting the ban lifted."
