The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) announced the appointment of Kevin Ramalingam as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP). The three-year contract started effective on 17 April.
The decision was reached by the FAM Executive Committee after two stages of screening and interviewing potential candidates.
The 40-year old has been involved in football since 2001 and was previously the CEO of The Red Warriors Sdn. Bhd. overseeing the development and management of commercial areas of Kelantan Football Association.
“I would like to thank the FAM and also the committee for entrusting me with this post. It is a big responsibility and there are certainly a lot of challenges ahead. It is my mission that the league is managed in a professional, advanced and efficient manner from technical and commercial aspect.
I’ll also ensure that Malaysian Super League (MSL) and Malaysian Premier League (MPL) teams will have additional income in the future. Success of the new league system will take time, but everything needs to start from somewhere. We are currently at the same stage where English Premier League (EPL) was in the early 90s’. I hope to make our league at least half successful as the EPL,” he said.
