The inauguration of the new FAM building and the turf which are to be constructed under the FIFA forward program, took place today.
The three-story building consists of a rehabilitation center, gym, café, sports shop, two changing rooms, and a referee’s room.
A turf is planned to be built alongside the building as the previous construction of a turf under the FIFA goal program has been reached a standstill.
The inauguration ceremony was privileged by the participation of minister of youth, Mahloof, president of FAM, Bassam and the managing director of Maldives sports cooperation.
While peaking at the ceremony, Bassam stated that the current FAM building is unable to carry out all the football-related matters, therefore they are in need of a new building.
Minister Mahloof stated that this project will bring advancement in the Maldivian football and will make a lot of tasks easier for FAM.
The current FAM building was constructed in 2005 and the smaller number of football pitches is a huge concern of the football player and the coaches as well.
