FAS’ response to media query on engaging Pioneer Generation ex-national players
We regularly engage with our ex-National Team players and involve them in our activities, regardless of age.
For example, they serve as ambassadors in our outreach programmes, school visits and visits to underprivileged homes. We also host them at FAS matches as our guests, and assist in the organisation of friendly matches for them, including the booking of pitches and all other related arrangements.
Another concrete example of the ongoing support we give them is taking place this weekend. The FAS worked with our close partner AirAsia to arrange for sponsored flights for a group of ex-internationals to participate in a veterans’ tournament in Langkawi. Among the players flying to Langkawi are Malek Awab, Razali Sa‚Äôad, Shahri Rahim, Robert Sim and R. Suria Murthy.
