Every journey in Football begins at the Grassroots.

In FAM, we believe that Football is for everyone. Football can be played by everyone regardless of age, gender, religion, ethnic or social background and level of fitness. It can be played everywhere and anywhere.

Football is a school of life. Fair play, team spirit and camaraderie are just a few of the many values advocated by football. Football is also fun! Having fun is the most important thing in football. Coaches teach the game, not victory at all costs.

Let the kids be kids! Grassroots football must be simple, exciting and rewarding for children.

All FAM’s Grassroots Initiatives are in line with AFC’s Grassroots Charter, an endorsement tool, which is to support Member Associations in their core task of implementing grassroots programs and activities which will achieve grassroots growth in Malaysian Football.


FAM Grassroots Ambassador
