FAM to push for artificial turf of each state


The FAM decided to push for the use of more artificial pitch was to ensure that the pitch quality at very stadia in the country is not affected regardless of usage.

Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin, the chairman of FAM’s Local Competition Committee(hmm,his name sounds very familiar,if i was not mistaken he is Manager of Selangor FA,doesn't he?), said that the appointment of the two agency from Germany and Belgium was to assist every stadia in the country have quality pitches.

He hopes that the stadium owners round the country will take this opportunity to go artificial where in the long run, it is beneficial to them where they do not have to grapple with bad quality pitches due to constant usage.

He added,"The artificial turf is easy to maintain and they can last up for to eight years. For the moment, we are struggling with pitch quality in most stadia which has in a lot of ways affected the quality of the game being played in the M-League.

This too could be opportunity to our national football team to get used with artificial turf to avenge our losses to Singapore at their renown artificial turf at Jalan Besar Stadium if we met them again in future there.
