NY Mayor's Cup
Stadium Officials Wrong To Toss Teams - USACA President Dainty
Broward Park stadium officials removed the two teams from the field adjoining the stadium while contesting the game, to make way for two soccer games, causing a premature end, in Florida last Saturday. The final between New York and Michigan (Central East) was being played in the stadium at the aid time.
According to the president, Broward Park Stadium officials were wrong to evict the Southern California (South West) and Florida (South East) teams as USACA was fully authorized to use the field.
“We had paid to use all the facilities we used that day, we had every right to be on it (field) at the time,” Dainty emphasized.
Pressed on the cause for the stadium officials’ action as a result, the president said it was a misunderstanding and the officials have since apologized and promised not to commit a re-occurrence in the future.
The teams had to make way for soccer matches on two occasions, which initially caused a lengthy stoppage and later on subsequently resulted in the premature end.
Dainty said he was not at the venue at the time, but hinted that a more defiant approach should’ve been adopted by the USACA officials present.
Florida was eventually adjudged winners of the game on net run rate and the result reportedly did not go down well with the California team.
A squad of 26 players was subsequently named following the championships and three Twenty20 trial games, to prepare for the United States’ participation in the Twenty20 World Cup qualifying series in Dubai, UAE in February.
