Ladies and Gentlemen,
Assalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarrakatuh,
selamat pagi and good morning.
First of all, on behalf of the President of
NFABD, I wish to express my gratitude and
appreciation to you Dato for your presence at
this significant event. I would also like to
express my thanks to Awang Abdul Latiff/ Members
of the Board of Directors of DST, Awang Haji
Suhaimi/ the CEO of DST and all that are present
today to mark this occasion.
As in the previous years, DST is again giving
its relentless support to NFABD, by sponsoring
NFABD to run football competitions such as
Sumbangsih Cup, Super League, Premier League and
FA Cup for the 2015 football season.
On this note, Dato, NFABD would like to express
our deepest appreciation and gratitude to DST.
With this sponsorship, NFABD will be able to
maintain the previous prize money for the
champion of the Super League, which has been
raised from $10,000 to $14,000. This will
continue to give more encouragement and
aspiration to the football teams to strive to be
better and be competitive. With this significant
sponsorship from DST, NFABD is also able to
increase number of matches for our Super League
football teams, in line with FIFA’s advice.
Based on last year’s performance, we could see
that there is a significant improvement in the
standard and quality of our football players;
and this will certainly enable us to identify
and select potential players for our national
Ladies and Gentlemen
I am pleased to inform you that NFABD has
arranged for the first match of the 2015 season
to kick off on Saturday 24th January at Hassanal
Bolkiah National Stadium, Berakas, which is for
the DST Sumbangsih Cup.
In this opening match, we will see the Super
League champion Indera SC team playing against
FA Cup champion MS ABDB team. We hope that there
will be a lot of football supporters to come and
watch the match.
I am also pleased to inform you Dato that last
year, NFABD was able to assist and give our full
support to DST in running DST Futsal for
orphans, which was held at Jerudong Sports
Complex. The event turned out to be a great
success with participation from a big number of
orphans throughout the Brunei-Muara District.
Once again, I would like to thank the Chairman
of DST, Dato Paduka Dr Awang Mohd Amin, to Awang
Abd Latiff/ Members of the Board of Directors of
DST, to Awang Haji Suhaimi/ CEO of DST, and to
all of you for being present here today. My deep
gratitude also goes to the organising committee
of this morning’s event.
Wassalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarrakatuh.
