We engaged in rigorous debate about potential discriminatory treatment based on MSAA, Mongolian Soccer Association of America actions, but in the spirit of sportsmanship, we agreed to participate in the 2017 MSAA tournament. After months of fundraising and securing sponsorship, we finalized our travel plans and alerted the Kalmyk community. Then, information was received containing an accusation and informal rule changes from MSAA.
These rules appear to disguise the discrimination that stopped us from participating in the tournament the last two years. The President of Mongolia, Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, has a mission to bring all Mongols together. Unfortunately, the MSAA does not understand the potential this tournament has to unite all Mongols. The President would be ashamed and disappointed.
The tournament is not about soccer, but bringing our youth together and bridging the elders to our younger generation once a year. By alienating DjangrFC and the Kalmyk community, you have done the MSAA irreparable damage. The only true rule is that players have a Mongol bloodline.
Due to this mindset of the MSAA, DjangrFC will no longer support MSAA sponsored events.
Thanks god that Lotus will represent a Kalmyk society in this tournament, as usually ))
