The National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) distributed sanitisation packages – obtained through FIFA COVID-19 Solidarity Relief Fund – to football clubs, academies, district associations and other stakeholders yesterday.

The packages will allow stakeholders to make necessary preparations for any upcoming tournaments following the recent announcement that competitive events are now allowed in the country, including the Brunei Super League which is scheduled to start on June 20.

The contents of each package include a set of hand sanitisers, a set of isopropyl alcohol disinfectants and a few sets of thermometer guns.

NFABD President Pengiran Haji Matusin bin Pengiran Haji Matasan said, “Alhamdulillah, NFABD is grateful to His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s Government for the great efforts in containing the COVID-19 situation to the extent that we are now able to play competitive football.

“As earlier announced, the Brunei Super League will kick off on June 20. This will give ample time for teams and organisers to prepare.
