KUALA LUMPUR – The National Dispute Resolution Chamber (NDRC) to be established next year will not replace the Status Committee of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).
Professional Footballers Association of Malaysia (PFAM) chief executive officer Izham Ismail said the NDRC would reduce the workload of the Status Committee by solving the contract issues of footballers.
“The NDRC will enhance problem solving regarding the contract of players which previously falls under the Status Committee.
The PFAM and FAM are in the midst of finalising the membership of the NDRC. We expect it to be finalised next year.”
The establishment of the NDRC was among the initiatives under Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by PFAM and FAM, here, today.
Izham signed the MoU on behalf of PFAM while FAM was represented by its secretary-general Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin.
The ceremony was witnessed by FAM president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim.
Meanwhile, Tunku Ismail praised the efforts undertaken by both parties to enhance the welfare of footballers in the country through the MoU.
“I think this (MoU) will benefit all parties. I hope this agreement will be the ice breaking of a new era that will benefit all organisations and also the footballers in our country,” he added. – BERNAMA
