MJS also participate in the financing of this league. The meeting, which took place on Wednesday afternoon lasted more than two and three types of competitions hours were offered to club representatives and representatives of the MFA. Finally it is the C model which was approved.
Other meetings will follow with private firms as well as the MFA for the organization of competitions.
"We had several consultative meetings in advance with the various stakeholders to see how we will proceed. During Wednesday's meeting we proposed three types of competitions for the club representatives and the federation that have adopted the model C. C that is to say, a private league with clubs that will be managed by private firms. Instead of seeking a sponsor it will be the company that will charge any club management unlike traditional clubs that its run by volunteers " said Dev Phokeer, permanent secretary at the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
With the implementation of the model C, the MJS think the team management will be on a more professional basis. The competition takes place on a private basis and the participating clubs will be expected to contribute in this league but they "will eventually profit share depending on their coasts," as mentioned in the press release issued by the MJS yesterday afternoon. Dev Phokeer also argues that this competition will have no connection with the events of the MFA.
The federation will continue to operate in parallel and its competitions and those of semi-professionals should not be held on the same days. Meetings will be held shortly with the private sector and with the MFA to refine the project.
To recap, the government - in the budget in 2014 - announced a semi-professional league will be implemented with the participation of clubs of yesteryear.
The aim is to give new life to the Mauritian football and at the same time encourage people to come to the stadium.
Model A: a semi-professional league separate from the MFA.
Model B: a league operating under the auspices of the MFA.
Model C: a separate league MFA but based on the basis of "private-ownership" ie a private firm investing in the club becomes the owner of the club.
