50-year plan to uplift Malaysian football prowess

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 May 2019: 

The Malaysian Football League (MFL) places high hopes on the MFL 50 Years Blueprint which will be launched soon to continue to spur the Malaysian League (M-League) to a new more progressive and competitive level.

MFL chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam said the MFL 50 Years strategic plan would be a strong guide to the local league’s administrative body which is headed by the Tunku Mahkota of Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim as chairman.

He said the long term plan, which was very strategic, would clearly dispel the perceptions of certain quarters that MFL did not draw up a mission and vision for the development of M-League and the competing teams.

‘’The direction of MFL will recorded for us to plan for the long term, and I think Tunku Ismail also wants to ensure that the long term plan of MFL is clearly laid out as a guidance and direction for MFL and its share partners.

‘’We don’t want changes at the highest management level would lead to instability if the focus is not given to the stipulated direction. This is done by the Japanese League themselves with its 100-year plan since 1992 which will be maintained despite whatever change and difficulties arising,’’ he said in a statement yesterday.
