"Regenerating Malaysia's Sports Stars of Tomorrow"
As per our theme, the Malaysian Youth Futsal Championship that we are proposing is to address, among other things, the growing issue of talent sourcing in the athletic arena. MYFC is a move that will develop and highlight talented members from the 46 per cent of Malaysian people in an effort to make sports, in this case futsal, sustainable. Furthermore, we insist on focusing on the future with the understanding that such talent will be further recognised and offers a chance at a career in athletics for those that excel.
