FAM menerima bayaran...

...dan bukan sebaliknya.

Seperti kejohanan lain seperti Malaysian Open (tennis), badan induk merupakan "organiser" tetapi mereka dibayar "sanction fee" oleh pihak promoter. Badan induk akan memperoleh sejumlah wang (yang selalunya besar) yang dipersetujui kedua-dua pihak.

Badan induk kemudiannya akan menolong dari segi aspek teknikal (referee, dsb). Promosi pula dilakukan pihak promoter dan mereka akan kemudiannya mengutip hasil jualan tiket.

Timbalan presiden FAM dan presiden Kelantan FA Annuar Musa ada menyentuh lawatan Arsenal (Jun 24) dan Manchester City (Julai 30) ke Malaysia dalam Facebook-nya semalam (gambar);

"...adalah baik bagi exco mengetahu detail kerana lazimnya EXCO menerima keputusan yg sudah dibuat."

" tk pasti samaada mereka (ProEvents) bayar pd kita atau kita bayar pd mereka."

" jgn lupa misi berbeza antara epl dgn kita...bagi mereka ini satu PR DAN PROMO dlm mencari PENAJA DAN COMMERCIAL SUPPORT...dari asia."

Annuar Musa mungkin tepat mengenai Exco yang selalunya menerima keputusan yang sudah dibuat.

Annuar Musa memang tepat mengenai misi kelab EPL di rantau ini. It's an open secret mereka ingin memperkukuhkan imej serta nama mereka di Asia. It is a branding exercise.

Sayang sekali pihak sekretariat FAM kini tidak dibenarkan membuat apa-apa kenytaan rasmi untuk membalas atau membidas kenytaan Annuar Musa.

Tapi orang dalaman FAM mengaku mereka mendapat duit dari Promoter dan bukan sebaliknya.

"We have been doing it for many years, when Arsenal visited Malaysia in 1975 and Boca Juniors played Selangor in 1982. FAM sanctions the tournaments and receives a sizable amount while the promoters (in this case ProEvents International) will rake in the ticket revenue."

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
