Following lengthy negotiations, Capital Football and Gungahlin United FC have reached a mutually agreeable outcome after the club failed to meet the payment arrangements for an historic aged debt. The decision by Capital Football and agreed to by GUFC, to deduct six points from the GUFC NPL first grade team has been made to protect the integrity of the NPL competition, to ensure it is a fair and equitable playing field for all clubs.
Capital Football is grateful for the openness exhibited by the club committee, and their desire to work with Capital Football to address their financial challenges. Capital Football also recognises GUFC’s desire to re-establish as a strong and successful club that continues to provide opportunities for players through grassroots and NPL competitions.
President of GUFC, Neil Harlock, says the negotiated outcome means the club can now move forward, “The new GUFC Executive has worked closely with the Capital Football Bard over the last six months to ensure that the financial stability as well as the future of the Gungahlin Football community is and remains the most important aspect of our club.”
