Dedza Young Soccer say they will appeal against Super League of Malawi (Sulom) Appeals Committee’s decision to allow Sulom to continue with the playoffs.
The club says it will appeal against the decision to the Football Association of Malawi (FAM).
The appeals committee on 5th April resolved that Sulom must reschedule the remaining playoff matches as soon as possible and must allow Dedza Young Soccer to participate in the playoffs in order to determine the 16th Super League team.
The appeals committee also said that if any party is aggrieved by the ruling, it has a right to appeal further to FAM before the playoffs are scheduled.
Dedza Young Soccer have decided to appeal to FAM as they are still protesting the decision by Sulom to hold the playoffs as a way of selecting the team that will play in the Super League next season.
Dedza claim that Sulom earlier indicated that only the last two teams would be relegated from the league in the 2015/16 season, a decision the league governing body did not implement.
It is still not clear whether Sulom will have 16 Super League teams when the new season starts on 16th April following Dedza’s decision to appeal.
On Tuesday the appeals committee also resolved that the result of the game between FISD Wizards and Airborne Rangers FC, which was concluded before the playoffs were suspended by an order of injunction, will stand and the game will be counted as the first match of the playoffs.
The first playoff match between Wizards F.C and Airborne Rangers saw the Blantyre based side win 2-1.
