Wakriya Athletic Club has officially protested against the decision to relocate its final match of the Guinea Ligue 1 season. The club expressed its discontent in a press release dated June 29, following the announcement by the Guinean Football League (LGF).

Wakriya AC, currently 8th in the league with 30 points and assured of remaining in Ligue 1 for the next season, is scheduled to play FC Séquence, who are battling to avoid relegation.

Originally set to host the match at the Kamsar stadium, Wakriya AC was informed that the game would instead take place at the Coleah stadium, which is the regular home ground for the visiting FC Séquence.

The Boké-based club, led by assistant coach Nour Gassim, has strongly condemned the decision, deeming it unfair and manipulative.

In their press release, the club stated, “Wakriya AC notes with astonishment the relocation of its return match.”

The club emphasized that this move could unduly influence the relegation battle between Soar Académie, currently 13th with 25 points, and FC Séquence, positioned 12th with 26 points.

The press release from Wakriya AC hints at a potential boycott of their final match, scheduled for Tuesday, July 2, unless the LGF reconsiders its decision.

The club stated, “Wakriya recalls that it will never associate itself with any manipulation and reserves the right to refer the matter to the national and international football authorities for the reestablishment of the truth.” This strong stance underscores the club’s commitment to fair play and integrity in the sport.

The Guinean Professional Football League’s response to Wakriya AC’s protest is keenly awaited.

The decision to move the match has not only angered Wakriya AC but also raised questions about the impartiality and fairness of the league’s administration.

The outcome of this dispute could have significant implications for the relegation battle and the overall credibility of the league.

Wakriya AC’s frustration stems from the timing and context of the venue change.

The final day of the 2023-2024 season is crucial, as it will determine which team will join Gangan FC in being relegated to Ligue 2.

Playing at a neutral venue, especially one that serves as the home ground for their opponents, FC Séquence, puts Wakriya AC at a perceived disadvantage.

This situation is particularly sensitive given that FC Séquence is fighting to stay out of the relegation zone.

This incident highlights the importance of maintaining transparency and fairness in football.

Wakriya AC’s strong reaction underscores their dedication to these principles.

The club’s decision to potentially escalate the matter to national and international football authorities indicates the seriousness of their allegations.

As the final day of the season approaches, all eyes are on the LGF’s response to Wakriya AC’s protest.

The decision will not only impact the immediate relegation battle but also set a precedent for how similar disputes are handled in the future.

For now, Wakriya AC remains firm in its stance, advocating for what it believes to be a fair and just resolution.
