A stellar year for YFA|
CIMB Foundation’s funding for the community football club, YFA-Bintang Muda, entered its third year in 2011.
This programme has been the Community Link programme of the Group CEO’s Office since inception, and Dato’ Sri Nazir Razak acts as team manager for the club’s Under-12 team.
His team emerged runners up in the nationwide 1MCC Junior Football League, and improvement from 4th placing in 2010. The team’s top striker, Alif Haikal bin Lokman, was named the league’s best player for 2011.
Today, YFA-Bintang Muda provides football training to 780 players, and the club has expanded to nine centres in the Klang Valley.
2011 was also a stellar year for the club in other respects. Its elite teams also emerged runners up in the nationwide 1MCC Junior Football League in the Under-16 category and reached the quarter-finals in the Under-14 category.
The club won 29 tournaments throughout the year. This included the Royal Selangor Club International 7’s and the Dato’ Chu Ah Ngee Cup, both of which YFA-Bintang Muda had won for the third consecutive year, and winning the two trophies outright.
To express their thanks to Dato’ Sri Nazir for his support and to CIMB Foundation for our funding, YFA-Bintang Muda presented the Royal Selangor Club International 7’s trophy to him.
