FIFA to give proposals today

Thursday, May 16, 2013
EVERYTHING looks to be in order for the further development of Brunei football.

FIFA Development Officer Jeysing Muthiah from Kuala Lumpur has acquired all the information needed for him to make a proposal to the National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD).

Muthiah, together with FIFA Technical Consultant Sivaji Nair of Singapore, are in the Sultanate for the five-day Football Management Program of FIFA Action Plan.

Over the past three days, they have talked to the stakeholders, visited schools and clubs, met with the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports and Ministry of Education as well as checked out training sessions and witnessed match play.

They will be giving recommendations to the Sultanate's football governing body today at The Empire Hotel & Country Club in Jerudong.

"We will give suggestions and it is up to them (NFABD) which one they want to adapt and see which one they want to achieve," said Muthiah.

"We have gathered a lot of information and there has been good feedback. But of course some are positive and some are negative.

"So we are compiling all these findings and we will have our own internal meeting today/tonight (Wednesday) to prepare some recommendations based on the information from the various stakeholders," he added.

"Then we will make some recommendations by presenting it to the NFABD Exco members. During the seminar they will have their own workshop.

"The Exco will discuss and come up with an action plan for the next two years on how to improve football.

"We will be there help to facilitate then FIFA will also come in to help them achieve this action plan," continued Muthiah.

The FIFA Development Officer also highlighted that different countries have different needs and they will have to come up with something that will work with the local culture.

The FIFA Officials will return to the Sultanate periodically to check on the progress of the plan once it is implemented.
