Bakokoto directs leaders to VFF constitution

The Honorary President of Shefa Football Association Billy Bakokoto has called on leaders of football in Vanuatu to stick to the constitution of the Vanuatu Football Federation, and to respect the integrety of
the provincial associations.
Mr. Bakokoto says whether the creation of a new sub-league is linked to the new structure of VFF or not, Shefa FA as well as all other associations in Vanuatu, have the right to create new leagues.
If people in Port Vila want to form a separate
association, that is fine, they can take their case to the next VFF congress.... but whilest they continue to mislead and confuse the public, let me take us to Article 65 of the VFF statute:

Article 65 Contacts
1 Matches may not be played or sporting contacts made between members and Associations that are not Members of VFF or provisional members of the Associations, or
their leagues or clubs, without the approval of VFF.

2 Matches against teams whose players do not belong to a club or a League affiliated to a VFF Member are prohibited.

3 Members and their clubs may not play on the territory of another Member without the latter,s approval.

Mr. Bakokoto is calling on those clubs coming out of Shefa Province and playing in the urban league to read the above article of VFF statute carefully. He says clubs that are not of SHEFA origin, are welcome to join South Efate Football League, or form their own sub-league under Shefa FA.
"This is common sense, because how can we start another football association when the current constitution allows only six associations in Vanuatu?" Bakokoto points out.

Meanwhile Shefa FA has been informed that some communities have been inquiring with the SEFL on registering their clubs with the new league.
