47th FAM Congress- Showdown begins..

A large number of stakeholders, members of the Press all suited up and an army ambulance stationed right at the entrance of the Glenmarie Ballroom. This is the scene at the 47th FA of Malaysia Congress at Holiday Inn in Shah Alam.

Officials are currently registering and exchanging pleasantries among each other. Some of the familiar faces include Dato' Soh Chin Aun, former FAM assistant gen-sec Saifuddin Abu Bakar (who is playing SPR for the day), Datuk Seri Raja Ahmad Zainuddin, former KLFA secretary Goh Ah Chai, former MIC No.2 man Dato' S.Subramaniam and National Sports Council director general Dato' Zolkples Embong.

FAM president Sultan Ahmad Shah and his son Tengku Abdullah are said to be on their way.

This posting will be updated from time to time.

Tengku Abdullah walks in. Stealing the limelight is Christopher Raj who comes out from the police escort car.

Sultan Ahmad Shah arrives but is still stationed in his car.

Update 4 (11.00am):
Sultan Ahmad Shah takes his seat and FAM gen-sec Dato' Azzudin Ahmad starts his opening address.

Update 5 (11.29am)
Hardly 30 minutes into the Congress, Sultan Ahmad Shah leaves some of the crowd in stitches. From reminding Azzudin to speak into the mic clearly to chiding Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim that "this is not a political meeting, this is FAM Congress". Tuanku still has it in him :)

FAM president Sultan Ahmad Shah wins uncontested (2010-2014). Tuanku expresses his gratitude to the affiliates for their support towards his leadership.
