PETALING JAYA: Work to privatise the M-League has begun.
The FA of Malaysia (FAM) held a one-day workshop with the stakeholders of Malaysian football at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) in Shah Alam on Thursday.
Privatisation committee chairman Datuk Afandi Hamzah said that the more than 150 participants had contributed positively towards their plans to move forward and privatise the M-League in 2015.
“The feedback has been overwhelming and all the participants support the idea and believe that our plans to privatise the M-League is the best way to move forward,” said Afandi.
Asian Football Confederation (AFC) deputy general secretary Windsor John Paul launched the one-day workshop.
FAM had announced in April that they would privatise the M-League in 2015 and set up the M-League privatisation committee to ensure a smooth transition when FAM hand over the running of the M-League to a neutral body.
Last month, the FAM met with their counterparts from the Japan FA (JFA) in their bid to seek assistance in the privatisation move.
Afandi said that they would take advantage of JFA’s experience in terms of development and exchange programmes.
