The Article

Eighteen young East Coast footballers are one step closer to earning a golden ticket to be part of the Allianz Junior Football Camp (AJFC) in Munich and the chance to train with FC Bayern Munich’s youth coaches this August.

The players thoroughly impressed selectors at the Regional Finals today and will now represent the East Coast Region in the Grand Finals of the AJFC Malaysia League 2018 from 5 to 7 July 2018. 

In the final, Kuantan Soccerkids B were crowned East Coast Region champions after beating Kuantan Soccerkids A 3-2 at Stadium Darul Makmur, Kuantan today. In the third and fourth placing match,  Young Chukai SBSS FC beat Sanas FC 1-0. 

“We are very proud to crown the East Coast Region champions today.  All the players showed a lot of heart and played tremendously. With AJFC, Allianz is very proud to be able to give these inspiring, and gifted young footballers a dream experience of what it is like to play football professionally. We congratulate all 18 players for making the team and we wish them the very best in the Grand Finals,” said Amy Loke, Chief Market Management Officer  of Allianz Malaysia Berhad. 

 

AJFC Malaysia League kicked-off in Central region at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi on 24 March 2018, followed by Southern region at Kompleks Sukan Hang Jebat, Malacca and Northern region at Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang (7 April); and East Coast region at Padang Majlis Perbandaran Kuantan 1and Kolej Universiti Islam Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah in Kuantan, Pahang and Sabah at Padang Sukma Kota Kinabalu (14 April). The format for the Malaysia League remains an 11-a-side affair played for 70 minutes.

Upon the culmination of the Malaysia League, the regional selection panel will then select the top 18 players from each region to form six regional teams that will compete in the Finals. Following three days of centralised training, the six teams will go head to head to determine the winner at the Grand Final on 7 July. At the end of the Grand Finals, 10 players will be selected to attend the AJFC Asia in Bangkok, Thailand, where the best two Malaysian players will be selected to attend AJFC in Munich, Germany.
