Rogaška Slatina decides how to move forward after
Football Association of Slovenia
(NZS) registered the match with Koper as 3:0 for Primorje.
wanted a replay of the cancelled match, but the NFA did not listen to the club, which had not enough home-grown players on its roster. The Black and Whites, who were left without a club president (who resigned in protest) after the NFA decision, initially threatened not to play any more matches under the NFA umbrella, but eventually changed their minds. Also in the light of the fact that not doing so would lead to chaos, and the 2023/24 season would be more likely than not to be irregular as a result.
NK ROGAŠKA PRESS RELEASE:
Rogaška Football Club is not a club of individuals who cling to their positions by any means, including lies, discrimination and trampling on others. These are methods in other organisations. Nobody is bigger than NK Rogaška and nobody can put themselves above the club.
As officers, we are obliged to act in the best interests of the club, to defend the interests of the club and to listen to the wishes of the people who love the club. We have been waiting for many years to watch first league football in Rogaška Slatina again. We worked hard for it. Without the support of the local community and supporters, we would not have succeeded. Here’s to us! And no one can take that away from us.
In recent days, we have received tremendous support from the entire Slovenian sports community, from several football clubs at all levels of competition, including the top leagues. We are happy and proud of that. This gives us the commitment not to give up. We did not come among the elite of Slovenian football to make a revolution, but we will defend justice and fairness at every moment and at every step – and we will not give up here.
The responsibility we have is multifaceted: on the one hand, it is a responsibility to the vast majority of the sports public, who have expressed their support for us and to whom we have promised to fight to the end, and on the other hand, it is a responsibility to our players, the children in our club, our fans and the Municipality of Rogaška Slatina, which has invested a great deal of money in providing the infrastructure to enable matches to be played in our home stadium.
A league with nine participants can also prevent Slovenian clubs from competing in European competitions. We don’t want to let anyone down and we shouldn’t. We find ourselves in a situation that is difficult, but not without a way out. Damage has been caused to the club, especially from a financial point of view, but that does not give us the right to cause damage to Slovenian football, Slovenian clubs, players, children, fans and the local community. It gives us a moral responsibility to act for the benefit of all stakeholders and to continue the fight for justice and the progress of Slovenian football.
That’s why we at NK Rogaška decided to play the game against Radomlje in the spirit of fair play and at the same time continue the battle for the hijacked Slovenian football. Still in public, but in parallel also in legal proceedings, if necessary, at various levels of Slovenian and international courts.
Small city, big heart!
