said W Connection
had gotten part payment from its other revenue sources, but credited Government red tape in releasing the Pro League's
promised subvention as the main reason for the payment delay.

, including making sacrifices.
"Defence Force also had to wait a while to get their prize," Skeene
"We are now awaiting the subvention for 2013-2014 from the Ministry (of Sport).
We have gotten a small fraction of the 2013-2014 subvention, and we as well have an allocation for 2014-2015 approved as well by Cabinet.
"All together it is $6.5 million.
We have been promised a certain amount for 2013-2014 which is in the sum of $3.25 million.
They have told us soon," Skeene

was a limited liability company, clubs are the owners, and make decision on revenue and expenditure.
