FFBD – Here are the members
As reported in the local dailies today, the Football Federation of Brunei Darussalam held their first ever annual general meeting last night. Dato Hamid, the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Industry & Primary Resources has been elected as the President after obtaining 14 votes for the seat. The new President said after his election that he would try to do much more for football in Brunei with his experience in football and management. 60 football club members attended the four-hour long meeting. American Idol would be much less in their minds last night thinking on the big tasks that lay ahead of them.

I remember reading a news article last year saying that Fifa, the world’s football body has given a subsidy to the now-defunct Bafa USD400,000 to build Bafa’s headquarters. Read this news from the Brunei Times.
Wonder what’s happening to the funding now? I hope Mr President, Dato that is, not Obama, would be able to enlighten football fans in Brunei on this matter shortly.
All the best to the new committee-members and lets see some actions this year please.
