Transforming the game on track

FAM President Fleetwood Haiya says the Association is moving into the right direction to sustainably transform the game for generations.

Haiya said this at the opening ceremony of a two-day Member Associations workshop at Sunbird Nkopola in Mangochi on Thursday.

He said the workshop, which is being facilitated by renowned football consultant Ashford Mamelodi from Botswana, is key to FAM administration’s focus to build capacity of its affiliates so that the game is transformed using a bottom-up approach.

“The scope of the workshop covers a number of key elements of leadership and good governance where all executive committee members emanating from all the nine FAM affiliated bodies will have an opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of modern leadership precepts for the benefit of our game at the source.

“At the end of this workshop, our expectation is that MAs will be equipped with expertise to handle administrative and operational assignments with more focus on lifting up our game from the current level to the next,” said Haiya.

He then called upon the MA’s to be united and adopt the football transformative agenda to play a meaningful role in the development of football in the country.

“Since we came in, we have brought into life the FAM strategic plan themed Transforming the game and our aim is to make sure that we have a strong association.

“We know that this can be achieved when there is a collective effort from all the FAM Member Associations, and this is why we have brought together all the Members of the MAs in order to capacitate them and align them to the transformative agenda as people responsible for its implementation,” he said.

Speaking on behalf of the participants, Northern Region Football Association General Secretary Masiya Nyasulu said: “This is the first time that we are having this kind of workshop bringing together all the Committee members of all nine member Associations. As participants, we expect that we will be equipped with modern knowledge on how we can manage our associations.

“We believe that by coming together, we will get to understand the strategic plan so that we also align our strategies with that of the mother body”, said Nyasulu.

On Friday, each Member Association will have an interface meeting with the FAM President.

The workshop which will be followed by the AGM on Saturday, 29th June 2024.
