KATHMANDU: Newly elected President of All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) Karma Tshiring Sherpa said there was a need of law to overcome the threat of match fixing.

“There is a threat of match fixing in Nepali football so i want to draw attention of government and lawmakers over this matter. They must bring strong laws and regulations to overcome such threat,” said Sherpa during an interaction program in Kathmandu on Sunday.

“FIFA have introduced software and methodologies to monitor the match fixing so we will also opt them in order to observe such threat,” added Sherpa.

He also stated that his main focus would be to maintain the transparency in Nepali football. “We will make financial regulations which will help us to maintain the transparency not just in ANFA but in whole Nepali football sector,” claimed Sherpa.

The A Division outfit Himalyan Sherpa Club’s President also informed his committee will decide to host the national league which has been stalled since several years and install the football training centres in 45 districts.

“Players are forced to change their profession in the absence of proper domestic football structure and playing environment. Now this trend will end during our tenure,” claimed Sherpa.

Furthermore, Sherpa also shared a plan of establishing 14 football academies in seven provinces.
