KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Grassroots League (MGL), a premier grassroots football organising body, is poised to launch its very own grassroots league nationwide early next year with league categories ranging from eight to 12 years old.
According to MGL Chief Operating Officer Uzair Azim, MGL seeks to provide a streamlined grassroots competition for the whole country in which any team can participate.
“On behalf of MGL, we intend to give young talents access to consistent and competitive football competitions throughout the year, with no one gets left behind. In addition, football camps will be organised in between the dates to complement the leagues.”
He added, “We are aware of the current existing ecosystem of Malaysian football, from Football Association of Malaysia (FAM), Malaysian Football League (MFL) to National Football Development Programme of Malaysia (NFDP) and we are happy to provide an additional platform for those who are missing out especially at grassroots level.
Every state will have its own league from eight to 12 years old categories, and this will commence as early as February 2021 depending on the COVID-19 situation and orders from the Malaysian government. Most importantly, we want these kids to have sufficient playing time throughout the year.”
By targeting community and private clubs in every state, MGL competitions next year will be open for registration in early December this year.
