Terengganu Football Association to Launch Terengganu Semi-Pro League Next Year | Sports


KUALA NERUS, December 12 – The Terengganu Football Association (PBSNT) will launch the Terengganu Semi-Pro Football League, which is scheduled to start in March next year.

Its vice president, Marzuki Sulong, said the league will include 12 teams including 10 affiliated with PBSNT while the other two will be guest teams to be determined later.

He said the aim was to strengthen the solidarity between the football fraternity in Terengganu as well as to find new talent.

We want the PBSNT affiliates, made up of 10 district football associations, to have their own clubs. They are the ones who will be the heart of football fans in their respective neighborhoods.

“We do not set any specific conditions such as an age limit for players who will join their respective clubs. They just need to have skills at the semi-professional level and priority should be given to Terengganu footballers, ”he said at a press conference after the 2021 PBSNT congress here today.

Also present was Secretary of State (SUK) Datuk Tengku Farok Hussin Tengku Abdul Jalil, who is also Secretary General of the PBSNT.

Previously, Tengku Farok presented a symbolic award of RM 8,000 to the Markless Komi team for winning the AFF Beach Football Festival 2021 in Pattaya last month.

In another development, Marzuki, who is also a board member of the Malaysian Football League (MFL), said PBSNT is ready to organize a beach soccer league in Terengganu as a starting point for organizing the sport at a higher level.

He said it was time for beach soccer to have its own league like futsal which is now one of the main and popular sports in Malaysia.

“Terengganu is ready to host any AFF beach soccer tournament. We want beach football to have its own league, and no longer in the form of simple tournaments, because after one the players will disappear, ”he said. – Bernama
