News from Beijing News (Reporter Zhou Xiao) Following the "Notice on Canceling the Registration Qualifications of Related Professional Football Clubs" issued by the Chinese Football Association on May 23 this year, the 67-year-old Liaoning Football Club was disqualified from registration due to wage arrears. However, the aftermath left by Liaoning Football Team has not subsided, and the former Liao football players are still committed to asking for wages. According to the Beijing News reporter, the players are solving the matter through legal channels, and the case is expected to be heard in the near future.
Since the beginning of this year, the Liao football players have started asking for salaries. Some players told the Beijing News reporter: “The bonuses for 2018, the salary and bonuses for 2019 are not paid. Because there is no income, everyone owes a lot of money on mortgages and credit cards. Life is very stressful. Although the team members have basically found their next home, we will not give up our rights and we must defend our rights to the end."
For this reason, Liao football players have sought help from the local sports bureau and the Chinese Football Association. However, because the Liaoning Football Club has been disqualified from registration, the Chinese Football Association stated in its reply to the "Inquiry on the Application for Arbitration of Liaoning Club Personnel", according to Article 5 of the "Chinese Football Association Constitution" and the "Work Rules of the Chinese Football Association Arbitration Committee" According to the relevant provisions of the Chinese Football Association, the Arbitration Commission of the Chinese Football Association will not accept applications for arbitration by the Liaoning Football Club. In its reply, the Football Association suggested that relevant personnel should protect their legitimate rights and interests through other channels in accordance with national laws and regulations.
Because the problem of wage arrears could not be resolved through industry arbitration, the Liaoning football players sought a solution through judicial channels and filed a labor arbitration with the Liaoning Provincial Labor and Personnel Dispute Arbitration Commission. It is reported that the case will be heard in court in the near future, and this long-running salary claim is expected to be finally resolved.
