AFF's No 2 re-elected

Brigadier General Khiev Sameth was elected as deputy chairman of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) for a second four-year term at the federation’s 22nd congress held in Yangon at the weekend, the Football Federation of Cambodia has announced.

He will also take up the role of acting AFF president when the re-elected president, Malaysia’s Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah, is absent.

Sameth said yesterday that he will have many important tasks to complete in his second term, including pushing the federation’s members to focus on youth in order to improve the region’s football as the ASEAN community has agreed to launch a bid for the right to host the 2034 World Cup.

“The AFF has a budget for helping member countries to develop youth teams because the level of football in ASEAN at the moment appears lower than other regions.

We are studying to decide which countries should be offered a budget to improve their youth teams,” Sameth said.
