Statement On MOU With FAM
SINGAPORE, 25 NOVEMBER 2015: Following a series of discussions over the past one year ‚Äì with the most recent meeting held in Kuala Lumpur earlier this month ‚Äì the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) informed us earlier this evening that they would not renew the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which was signed in 2011.
We agree with the FAM that the collaboration between both Associations during the past few years has been successful.
One of the key components of the MOU is the participation of a team in each other‚Äôs leagues. Following the expiry of the MOU, the LionsXII and Harimau Muda will no longer participate in the Malaysian Super League and S.League respectively from 2016 onwards.
Our immediate priority is to assist the LionsXII players and backroom staff and we will be meeting them over the next few days.
