FAM president Datuk Hamidin Amin

KUALA LUMPUR: FA of Malaysia (FAM) president Datuk Hamidin Amin has expressed his full support for the second World Football Summit (WSF) Asia, which will be held in Kuala Lumpur on July 1-2, next year.

This is following the success of the inaugural edition in Kuala Lumpur, which was attended by over 1,000 delegates from 60 countries with diverse backgrounds in the football industry, including policy makers at national and club levels, sponsors and media practitioners.

Hamidin described the summit as the biggest stage for local football stakeholders to understand the latest demands in managing football.

“Based on the first WFS Asia, the second edition should also provide a platform for all stakeholders to understand the latest trends in world football.

“With the presence of a number of key personalities as well as through presentations and knowledge-sharing sessions, WFS Asia will provide space for stakeholders to conduct networking in search of new ideas to generate revenue and boost economic growth.

“We support such a prestigious event as it not only allows FAM, our affiliates and stakeholders to update our knowledge but also contribute to sport tourism with the presence of foreign delegates,” he said during a visit by WFS Asia’s top management, led by chief executive officer R. Mohan.
