ŠKF Sereď football club did not meet the license conditions and will not perform in the Fortuna league next season.
In the highest Slovak competition, he will be replaced by MFK Dukla Banská Bystrica in case he goes through a shortened licensing procedure. The second match of the second team II is canceled. league with the Golden Moravians, who retained their fortunal league affiliation. The decision was made by the Presidium of the Union of League Clubs (ÚLK) at Wednesday’s extraordinary meeting.
Failure to comply with Serede’s licensing conditions also means that she was banned from the European Conference League (EKL) 2022/2023, which she was to play as the 5th team after the group’s title. The Presidium of the ÚLK has postponed the opportunity to play the playoffs of the 8th team of the final table, which will be one of the pair of MFK Tatran Liptovský Mikuláš – MFK Zemplín Michalovce. They will perform at FC DAC 1904 Dunajská Streda, the second pair consists of MŠK Žilina and AS Trenčín.
Sereď played in the highest competition since the 2018/2019 season, but due to the unsatisfactory conditions of its stadium, it played home matches elsewhere. ŠKF presented itself in Nitra, Zlaté Moravce, Trnava and once in Bratislava’s Pasienky. However, the club paid for the persistent and unresolved problem with a forced end in the highest competition. This year was the most successful for Sereď on the sports side.
“I am very pleased that all the clubs have come to today’s meeting because we have addressed important issues. After receiving the opinion of Sereda, who did not appeal against the licensing procedure, a new situation arose for us. Sereď lost the right to play in the Fortuna League and also in European competitions. We had two problems with the barracks and the playoffs about EKL. The Presidium has agreed that the barrage will be canceled, as it makes no sense from a sports point of view.
Zlaté Moravce remains in the competition after the end of FL and we will offer the place of Sered Banská Bystrica, which has to go through a shortened licensing procedure and then it will become a new participant in the highest competition. Another topic was the playoffs, where the order of individual teams in the table is shifted for its purposes. In the semifinals, the fourth team will play against the eighth team in the final table and the sixth against the seventh, “ said the president of ÚLK Ivan Kozák.
