Ladies and Gentleman,
Assalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarrakatuh and good afternoon.
I am honoured and privileged once again to be able to stand here as a guest of honour for the Opening Ceremony of AFC ‘C’ Certificate Course, which has been scheduled to commenced today 24th November 2015 until 6th December 2015.
I am happy to note that 22 participants including four from Singapore, two from Australia and one from Malaysia have registered for this course. On behalf of NFABD, I would like to welcome all of you and our local participants for participating in this course.
The NFABD believes that with a structured youth development programme assisted by qualified coaches in our Coach Education program, we will progress to raise our football standards to compete in future regional and international competitions.
We can only build a strong and sustainable National A Team, if we have a strong youth development program, which can produce quality youth players. This can only be achieved, if we have a base of good quality coaches that we are in the progress of building.
I strongly urge all participating aspiring coaches to take full advantage of the AFC ‘C’ Certificate Coaching course and utilize the knowledge imparted by the AFC Instructor for your professional development, which you can take back to your respective country and clubs.
With the kalimah of Bismillahir Rahman Nirrahim, I officially declare the AFC ‘C’ Certificate Course Open.
Wabillahi taufiq walhidayah wassalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
