PETALING JAYA: The FA of Malaysia (FAM) will disburse a total of RM8mil to their affiliates today.

The big payout includes payments for the Malaysian Super League (MSL) incentive scheme (RM3.1mil), prize money (RM2.025mil), Astro broadcast revenues (RM950,000), Futsal League subsidies (RM700,000) and for match officials in the Ministry of Education Leagues (RM200,000).

FAM secretary general Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin stressed that teams will not be allowed to include new players on loan for next month’s Malaysia Cup competition.

“We are done with the two transfer windows for the season (Nov-Dec 2012 and April). We have made it clear to all teams regarding the movement of players,” Hamidin said at the farewell luncheon for former FAM secretary general Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad at Wisma FAM in Kelana Jaya yesterday.

Hamidin said that teams should be prepared to cope with the demands of the professional game as they would increase the quota on foreign players from two to three next season.

“The competitions committee have decided on three imports, including one from Asia, next season. We hope that this will boost the challenge of the teams who will represent Malaysia in next year’s AFC Cup competition and help them break past the quarter-final mark, which we have struggled to do in the last 10 seasons,” said Hamidin.

“We are aware that the tight fixtures are one of the reasons why teams have not been able to perform well. We will try do everything possible to give the two teams more breathing space to focus on the Asian club competition.” 

Meanwhile, Azzuddin said that the privatisation of the MSL would be among the main agenda of Hamidin’s table as FAM secretary general. 

He hoped that the FAM would continue to support the youth development programmes in schools and their coaching staff as well as the Project squads – Harimau Muda A, B and C.

Azzuddin also commented on the partnership between FAM and Frenz United, saying it had raised the standard of the game at the grassroots level now that there is an Asean Champions Trophy Under-15 League.
