Sabah FA AGM on Dec

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah FA is getting its house in order before holding its annual general meeting cum election of new office bearers, expected to be held later this year.

To do that, the FA will go to the ground and try to get all its 27 district affiliates to be registered with the Sports Commissioner.

Alijus Hj Sipil said they need to get these districts to be registered with the Sports Commissioner before they could hold the AGM.

“We will be going to the ground and conducting briefings with all these districts,” the FA Secretary General said when contacted yesterday.

“Since our registration with the Sports Commissioner early this year, we have made some amendments or rather new rules in our constitution.

“The main changes are that we no longer have this zone thing. Now, these districts will go under direct affiliation with the FA, unlike previously where they were under the affiliations of their respective zones.

“So, they must also register with the Sports Commissioner.

“We are trying to speed up things and hopefully by the end of October, all these districts will be registered with the Sports Commissioner.

“We are given (by the Sports Commissioner) until December (this year) to hold our AGM. And before we could do that, we need to put our house in order.

On the new constitution, Alijus said that it was made in good faith and that they want all districts to be involved in the development of football in the State.

“We hope, all these districts will play their respective roles in the development of football in Sabah, not just for the sake of the FA, but for the Sabah State,” he said.

Alijus said for a start, these districts can form a pro-tem committee.

“We will be going on a road-show to conduct briefings for these districts. During these briefings, we will bring official/s from the Sports Commissioner,” said Alijus, adding that they have identified six centres.

The six centres are Tawau, Sandakan, Keningau, Beaufort, Kota Marudu and Kota Kinabalu.

Tawau will kick start the road-show (briefing) where it will be held today from 9.30am at the Tawau Sports Complex. It is for Tawau, Semporna, Kunak and Lahad Datu districts.

The Sandakan briefing, which is for Sandakan, Kinabatangan, Beluran and Tongod districts, will be held on September 13 at the Sandakan Sports Complex, followed by Keningau (Keningau, Tambunan, Tenom and Nabawan) on Sept 18 at the Keningau Sports Complex.

In Beaufort, it will be held on September 20 at the Beaufort District Office (Beaufort, Sipitang, Kuala Penyu and Labuan).

Then in Kota Marudu on September 25 at the Hotel Marudu Inn (Kota Marudu, Pitas and Kudat), while the final briefing for Kota Kinabalu, Tuaran, Penampang, Kota Belud, Ranau, Papar and Putatan will be held on September 27 at the Sabah FA office in Likas.
