FFBD Won't Proceed With League and FA Cup

Bandar Seri Begawan - In light of the recent football development and the lifting of suspension of Brunei Darussalam's membership in FIFA, the Football Federation of Brunei Darussalam (FFBD) Executive Committee yesterday has issued a statement.

According to the statement, FFBD welcomes the return of Brunei Darussalam to FIFA that will now enable our national and club teams to play in FIFA/AFC-sanctioned regional as well as international football tournaments.

The FFBD joins all football stakeholders in the country in rejoicing and congratulating those that have worked tirelessly to bring us back from isolation, in particular His Royal Highness Prince Haji Sufri Bolkiah, the President of Brunei Darussalam National Olympic Committee, for his leadership in successfully ending our suspension from international football.

The FFBD also welcomes the establishment of the National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) which is now the recognised national body to represent Brunei Darussalam in FIFA and expresses its best wishes to the newly appointed members of NFABD's Executive Committee in their efforts to bring development and success to the country's football.

On the NFABD's press statement published in the local press on the 10th June 2011 regarding the running of the current DST Group Brunei Premier League 2011, the FFBD has decided on the following points:

The FFBD is consulting all its sponsors and stakeholders of the possibility of not continuing with the League.

This decision is made in view of the difficult if not impossible timeframe set for the FFBD to complete the League and related FA Cup competitions for which there are a total of 71 matches remaining (i.e. 48 and 23 matches respectively) in only 46 days. The FFBD is not prepared to undertake a football programme knowing it could not be completed on time.

Furthermore, out of its consideration of NFABD's obligations as per FIFA Article 13 (as mentioned in the NFABD's press statement) and bearing in mind other constraints and possible disruptions such as field availability, inclement weather and a limited number of match officials, the FFBD has decided in principle not to proceed with the remaining League and FA Cup programmes.

Given this decision, the FFBD will be taking legal steps to dissolve itself as soon as possible.

The FFBD wishes to take this opportunity to thank His Majesty's Government through the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, DST Group of Companies, Brunei LNG and many others for their generous sponsorship and support to keep football going in the country during the last two years. The FFBD also wishes to thank-all its member affiliates for their support and participation.

It is only with the support of all these agencies and people that the FFBD was able successfully to put together nearly 800 competitive matches, start for the very first time grassroots National Under-10, Under-12, Under-14 and Under-16 leagues in the country, and keep football going during the two and half years it was in charge.

It is time to bid goodbye, and in so doing, the FFBD Executive Committee urges all football stakeholders in the country to work together in greater unity and purpose to bring the development of football to greater heights.

...Meanwhile, in the BPL II, Kilanas FC failed to reclaim top spot after they were held to a 3-3 draw by Muara Vella FC at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas.

Victory was all but certain for Kilanas FC when Naasiruddeen completed his hat-trick in the 67th minute, only to be denied maximum points when Abd Azim struck a late equaliser in the 86th minute. Red Giant teammates Amos and Sulaiman also found the back of the net in the six-goal thriller....

BYT force draw

Saturday, April 16, 2011

MD NUR Ikhmal Awg Damit struck two minutes from time to snatch a well deserved 1-1 draw for Brunei Youth Team (BYT) against DST Group Brunei Premier League II leaders Kilanas FC yesterday.

Denying Kilanas the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table, the striker tapped in from close range after the ever-reliable Kilanas' goalkeeper Abdul Hafiz Ahmad botched a save.

Looking his usual dangerous self all afternoon long, BYT captain Md Azwan Ali Rahman sent in a low cross that caught the entire Kilanas rear-guard napping.

Abdul Hafiz boxed the ball out but only to the feet of Md Nur Ikhmal, who fired home to give BYT a share of the points at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas.

Instantly running together to celebrate as a group, it was obvious how much the draw which maintained their unbeaten run in the league along with Kilanas meant to BYT.

The side made up of Under-18 players continue to trail Kilanas by two points but Hj Md Rosanan Abdullah Samak was more than encouraged by their performance.

"The boys played well but they just didn't take their chances," said the BYT coach, who saw Md Azwan's first-half penalty saved by Abdul Hafiz.

"As long as they work hard I'm happy, and it was some good football by both sides," added the ex-national player.

Kilanas coach Sidik Eya was surprisingly pleased with the stalemate and felt his men did well to withstand a late offensive salvo by BYT which has been grooming players for the national team since last year.

"They used a 3-5-2 formation in the end and we had to defend," said Sidik.

"I didn't really see the goal but I'm happy with the draw," added the coach, who went on to pick out his goalkeeper for special praise.

Ak Azwandy Pg Hj Othman opened the scoring in the 22nd minute with an exquisitely taken goal, cutting in from the left and nutmegging his defender before unleashing a curler to the right.

BYT almost equalised five minutes later when Abdul Al-Wardy Abdul Hamid sent in a cross to the left. It was expertly headed back across the face of goal by Md Azwan but Abdul Al-Wardy's header produced a fine save point-blank save by Abdul Hafiz.

The shotstopper would continue to enjoy adulations after diving to his right to keep out Md Azwan's penalty in the 40th minute when Md Nazirul Zulhilmi Hj Annuar handled the ball in the area.

Minutes later BYT's Md Safwan Amaluddin beat Izzul Wazzien Osman with a strong run into the box only to see his shot scamper wide of the left post.

It was a much more open game in the second half, with the best chance falling to Syazwan Azizi Hj Md Taib, who evaded defender Md Nur Azees Awang Ali but not Md Ashanudin Hj Md Dani in between the BYT goal who was earning a rare start ahead of Ron Junior Philip.

Md Aminuddin Zakwan Tahir forced Abdul Hafiz to tip the ball over the bar for a corner 15 minutes into the half and Md Ashanudin was called into action moments later when he saved a dipping free-kick from Md Nazirul.

Md Nur Azees' through ball carved open space for Md Nur Ikhmal Othman in the box, but continuing BYT's poor form in front of the goal, he fired wide despite catching Abdul Hafiz out of his line.

Syazwan Azizi should have made it 2-0 mid-way through the half when he stole the ball from a careless Ak Dinnie Hafizan Pg Azman at the edge of the BYT area. However, his shot missed the target much to the dismay of the Kilanas faithful.

As fatigue set in, BYT looked destined to be sentenced for their poor finishing with their first loss of the league.

But invigorated after the goal which launched a shouting war between the two sets of fans BYT embarked on a series of attacks, which unfortunately was too little too late.

BPL II action continues tomorrow with four games held across three districts.

BIBD hold fort in 1-1 draw

Monday, April 11, 2011

BIBD FT withstood Kilanas FC's barrage of attacks to escape with a point during their DST Group Brunei Premier League II match at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas yesterday.

The match was Kilanas FC's lost after they failed to capitalise on their numerous chances and in the end had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate.

Shaiful Mohammad salvaged a point for BIBD FT with a miraculous goal early in the second half after Kilanas FC's Kurmin Hj Bini's effort left them in the backfoot.

Enjoying most of the possession early in the match, the forward gave Kilanas FC a well-deserved lead when he beat the defence and shot past BIBD FT goalkeeper Ak Ahmad Fitri Pg Hj Momin in the 22nd minute.

Kilanas FC's Md Ehsan Hj Moksin had two chances to widen the lead against their opponents but both his shots went wide.

BIBD FT replied with skipper Shaiful wrongfooting Kilanas FC defender Md Nazirul Azim Hj Annuar and taking aim at the bottom corner of the near post but goalkeeper Abdul Hafiz Ahmad parried the ball.

Shaiful collected the rebound and played it to Mohd Shukor Hj Abd Ghani who blasted the ball wide.

The last notable action of the first half was when Ak Azwandy Pg Hj Othman delivered a splendid ball into BIBD FT's box from a corner kick but Kilanas FC captain Md Alikhan Hj Md Yakop was unable to direct the ball goalwards.

BIBD FT returned with much vigour after the break and it paid off when they won a corner. Ak Mohd Asrin Pg Hj Mohammadin's kick drifted to the far edge of the box, where Shaiful met the ball with a header that lobbed beyond the Kilanas FC goalkeeper's reach in the 49th minute to level the scoreline.

The goal sparked BIBD FT's charge forward for an end-to-end battle but it was still Kilanas FC that had the better chances.

Kurmin picked up on Md Khairul Hj Abd Halim's over-the-head pass to slice through the BIBD FT defence. He passed the ball to Ak Azwandy but the BIBD FT goalkeeper Ak Ahmad Fitri denied him a goal with an excellent save.

Midfielder Md Ehsan led a counter into opponent territory and had BIBD FT defender Amp Md Badaruddin Asri Amp Hj Said beaten to freely rifle the ball goalwards. Yet Ak Ahmad Fitri came to BIBD FT's rescue again when he managed to put a hand to the ball to keep his side in the game.

Then Mohd Saidy Hj Abd Rahman and Kilanas FC goalkeeper Abdul Hafiz collided when attempting to intercept Md Salihen Suhaimi's cross from the left flank. Substitute Ak Md Fakhrul Hibatullah Pg Hamzah buried the loose ball into the back of Kilanas FC's net but the goal was ruled out as the linesman had his flag up.

Meanwhile substitute Ak Mohd Sukri Pg Hj Jaluddin wasted two golden opportunities to give Kilanas FC the advantage late in the match.

First, the 24-year-old missed the gaping goalmouth from pointblank after Zulhilmy Majid provided the opportunity. The second time was when BIBD FT goalkeeper Ak Ahmad Fitri fumbled the ball while attempting to save Md Razi Hj Tamit's tame freekick. Ak Mohd Sukri latched onto the ball but the shot was well off-course.

Rimba Star outshine BIBD

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

TWO penalties in the first half condemned BIBD FT to a 2-1 defeat against Rimba Star FC during their DST Group Brunei Premier League II (BPL II) match at the Berakas Sports Complex last night.

It was a match to forget for BIBD FT defender Ahmad Nazmie Omar who committed the fouls that allowed Md Rafiie Hj Abd Majid and Hazwan Hamzah to seal the deal in Rimba Star's favour.

Though BIBD FT were the better side throughout the match, the bankers only notched one goal via Ak Md Khairul Anwar Pg Md Salleh.

Supporters did not have to wait long for the goals to come by when both teams found the back of the net within three minutes of the game.

It looked like BIBD FT faced an uphill task early in the match when Ahmad Nazmie felled a Rimba Star player within the box.

Md Rafiie stepped up to the spot and he made no mistake to fire Rimba Star to the front in the 2nd minute.

However the Rimba Star followers were silenced a mere minute later when Ak Md Khairul Anwar towered over the defence to drill in the equaliser.

The BIBD FT forward almost provided an assist with a low cross from the right flank but Mohd Saidy Hj Abd Rahman was not able to direct it into the net.

Mohd Saidy had another chance, at the receiving end of Md Salihen Suhaimi's corner kick, but the header was off target.

BIBD FT skipper Shaiful Mohammad curled in a freekick into the opponents' box and Amp Md Badaruddin Asri Amp Hj Said should have done better to give his team the advantage.

The bankers were made to rue the missed chances when the referee awarded another penalty kick in Rimba Star's favour following another reckless challenge by Ahmad Nazmie.

Hazwan successfully buried the ball into the back of the net but the celebration was cut short when the referee insisted the penalty kick to be re-taken.

It only delayed the inevitable as the Rimba Star skipper beat BIBD FT goalkeeper Ak Ahmad Fitri Pg Hj Momin again to restore their one-goal lead in the 24th minute.

Md Salihen tried to put BIBD FT on level terms soon after with a header goalwards but Rimba Star goalkeeper Abd Rahim Awg Tengah dived excellently for the save.

Rimba Star thought they had lost the lead when their failure to clear a corner gave Mohd Shukor Hj Abd Ghani time and space to fire a missile past stunned Abd Rahim.

However the bankers were left disappointed when the linesman raised the flag for an offside.

Both teams started off the second half slowly and neither teams had any clear cut chances on goal.

The BIBD FT supporters grew frustrated with their players' lack of creativity to find the equaliser and started to chant the team's name to muster up their spirit.

Substitute Ak Syafie Pg Hj Shahrum almost repaid their belief by finding the first real chance of the half but it flashed wide off the near post.

A confusion in Rimba Star's box allowed Md Salihen to shoot from point blank but it went straight to the goalkeeper.

He tried to test the goalkeeper again soon after but Abd Rahim rushed off the posts before he could pull the trigger.

Even with four minutes of stoppage time the bankers were unable to break down Rimba Star, who made no notable threats at all throughout the match besides the penalties, and paid the price with the 2-1 defeat.

The result in Berakas last night means BIBD FT slip down to fifth while BPL II debutants Rimba Star soared to third in the 10-team BPL II table.

The BPL II will resume with five matches slated this weekend.

Saturday's sole match will pit Rimba Star and basement team Menglait FC at the Berakas Sports Complex at 8.15pm. Meanwhile, three matches are slated to take place on Sunday at 4pm.

Brunei Shell FT will play host to Muara Vella FC at the Brunei Shell Recreational Club in Seria, while BIBD FT take on leaders Kilanas FC at the Balapan Track (moved to SNHB) and Field in Berakas. Over at the Berakas Sports Complex, Brunei Youth Team will take on Lun Bawang. The late match will feature league namesakes DST Group FT and Perkasa at the same venue at 8.15pm.

REVIEW: Ketara BIBD FC menguasai perlawanan ini dan RIMBA STAR hanya dapat menembusi gawang BIBD FC melalui 2 sepakan penalti (Goalkeeper BIBD FC, juga akan merasa perlawana menentang Kilanas FC satu perlawanan yg bererti, kerana Ak Ahmad Fitri Pg Hj Momin (Pat) adalah bekas penjaga goal Kilanas FC, yg berpindah ke AH United pada 2 musim lepas) Walauapapun, diharapkan pada hari minggu ini Kilanas FC tetap akan memberikan saingan hebat dan mudahan kitani berjaya dan unggul dalam Perdana II musim ini!! AMIN..

Kilanas fight back to stay at the summit

Sunday, April 3, 2011

KILANAS FC fought back from a goal down to win 2-1 against DST Group FT in their DST Group Brunei Premier League II (BPL II) match at the Berakas Sports Complex last night.

A goal each from Md Khairul Hj Abd Halim and Md Ehsan Hj Moksin in the second half allowed Kilanas to keep hold of top spot in the lower tier league.

The league namesakes were unable to hold onto their one-goal advantage that Hj Khairul Anuar Hj Yakub scored in the 15th minute.

Kilanas players celebrated joyously when the whistle blew and those unfamiliar with the BPL II would have thought that the team had already won the league.

"It's because we are aiming to better our record compared to last season, when we were held 2-2 by DST Group. We consider DST Group FT one of the strongest teams in the league. With this match done, the next team to beat will be BIBD FT," said Mohd Kamran Sah, the Kilanas assistant manager.

Assessing the overall performance of the team, Mohd Kamran was generally happy with how they controlled the first half although luck was not on their side.

"The match was more balanced in the second half. DST Group were looking to defend their lead so we just kept piling on the pressure. Getting the first goal definitely made the team work harder to score the winner," he added.

Kilanas' Md Alikhan Hj Md Yakop fired a warning shot that DST Group FT goalkeeper Md Ruzaini Abdullah Subi had to palm away at the far post.

DST Group replied with Ahmad Aiman Hj Awg Besar playing Ahmah Mumtaz Hj Johor through for a shot on goal but the latter's effort was blocked.

Though Kilanas had more attacking opportunities, it was DST Group that gained the advantage when Hj Khairul Anuar towered over the defence to drill in the opener in the 15th minute.

Kilanas stepped on the pedal for the second half and the pressure paid off with Md Khairul rifling in the equaliser in the 53rd minute.

Substitute Md Ehsan was called in to play in the 64th minute and the 21-year-old Kilanas player only took a minute to make an impact. The midfielder beat the DST Group defence on the left flank for a one-on-one with goalkeeper Md Ruzaini. Md Ehsan curled the ball with his right footed shot into the top corner of the DST Group goalkeeper's far post in the 65th minute.

BPL II resumes today with two matches slated at the Berakas Sports Complex.The Brunei Times

Bankers show they mean business

Monday, March 28, 2011

BIBD FT sounded the warning in the DST Group Brunei Premier League II (BPL II) after a 2-1 victory over Lun Bawang at the Batu Apoi Sports Complex in Temburong yesterday.

Formerly known as the Brunei Association of Banks and under a new management, the bankers showed that they are not the same team that lost 4-0 to Lun Bawang last season.

Md Saidy Abdul Rahman fired BIBD FT into the lead in the 61st minute before Ak Md Khairul Anwar Pg Md Salleh Chuchu doubled the advantage in the 82nd minute.

The home team scored a consolation goal in the 87th minute via Christopher Ambon.

BIBD FT manager Pg Shahrul Hayat Pg Hj Shamsu expressed satisfaction at how the team had started their campaign.

"We, the management committee, are satisfied with the players today (Sunday). I admit that in the first half we had problems in trying to break down the opponents' possession. A change of tactic after the break finally allowed us to break the deadlock ... It was a good result to get when taking into account the less than satisfactory condition of the field," said the BIBD FT manager.

The field was in bad condition when the skies opened up over the Batu Apoi Sports Complex. Though the rain subsided midway through the match, the damage had already been done.

"This is a good result to get for the first match ... Of course, the objective of any team's participation in a tournament is to become the champions. If everything goes well for the team then we could probably achieve that target. However, it's only our first match and, therefore, still too soon to draw any conclusions," said Pg Shahrul Hayat.

Meanwhile, the other BPL II match witnessed the Brunei Shell FT (BSFT) stumble in their quest to return to the top-tier league at the Brunei Shell Recreation Club in Seria.

Md Faisul Zaini scored in the 90th minute against Rimba Star FC to force a 1-1 draw.

Md Qamarulludin Abd Rahim fired the visitors' goal in the 36th minute.

With yesterday's matches concluded, it means that all 10 teams already had a taste of the season to come.

Kilanas FC still lead the table following their 4-1 hammering of Menglait FC, who sit last, on Friday.

League namesakes DST Group FT and BIBD FT are level at second place.

In the middle of the table sits organisers the Football Federation of Brunei Darussalam's project Brunei Youth Team, Perkasa, BSFT and Rimba Star.

Pointless Muara Vella and Lun Bawang place at the undesired end of the table.

Local football action resumes with the BPL I match between Jerudong FC and leaders the Royal Brunei Armed Forces' Sports Council at the Berakas Sports Complex tomorrow at 8.15pm.

Good start for Kilanas

Saturday, March 26, 2011

KILANAS FC surged to the top of the DST Group Brunei Premier League (BPL) II after an emphatic 4-1 win over Menglait FC while Brunei Youth Team (BYT) had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Perkasa after conceding a late equaliser in yesterday's season opener.

The triple-header also saw tournament namesakes the DST Group Football Team beat Muara Vella 2-1 at the Berakas Sports Complex, but the real headlines were at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas, where goals from brothers Md Saiful Ariffin and Saiful Ammar Hj Adis cancelled out a brace from BYT captain Md Azwan Ali Rahman.

A brainchild of the Football Federation of Brunei Darussalam (FFBD), BYT are regarded as the future of Brunei football and finished a commendable seventh in their debut in the 11-team BPL II last season.

But despite having the upper-hand in yesterday's match which saw both teams forced to play with 10 men in the second half BYT's concentration faded in the last quarter of an hour and let in a sloppy goal which cost them the win.

The most promising player on the pitch, Md Azwan got on the scoresheet in the ninth minute when he controlled a hefty goal-kick from his goalkeeper Ron Junior Philip and scored from inside the box after cutting in from the left flank.

It was 1-1 three minutes later when a mix-up in defence saw Philip rush out of his line to let Saiful Ammar score, but BYT regained the lead in the 32nd minute when Md Azwan kept his composure to slot home a precision pass from Md Nur Ikhwan Othman.

BYT would continue to control the game, and their organisation in midfield meant Perkasa were second best in possession and territory.

The game's complexion changed five minutes from the break when BYT's Md Taufiqillah Abdul Hamid and Perkasa's Masrodie Joinidi were sent to an early shower after a scuffle, but BYT still managed to enjoy the upper hand in the second half.

Md Azwan and Abdul Al-Wardy Abdul Hamid both had chances that were denied by the woodwork, while Perkasa's best attempt was cleared off the line by Md Nazri Hj Erwan.

Running out of steam, Md Azwan was substituted around the hour mark in what was the game's turning point.

Though his replacement Md Shapiee Hj Mohd Efenddy proved to be a menace with his tireless runs, and Md Aminuddin Zakwan Tahir was a threat down the right flank, Perkasa's experience slowly started to shine through.

Beginning to string passes together and break down BYT's midfield, Perkasa's only fault was they lacked finesse in the final third.

Saiful Ammar had a weak long-range attempt that hardly troubled Philip, but there was nothing the glovesman could do when he punched a shot to Md Saiful Ariffin in the 86th minute, who duly headed home the equaliser.

"Both of us are proud and happy to have scored the goals," said Saiful Ammar after the match.

"It just goes to show that if you work hard anything can happen," added the former BYT player.

Emphasising the importance of a good result in their opener, the late drama was definitely not to Hj Md Rosanan Abdullah Samak's liking.

"They blew it ... Their mentality wasn't strong enough," was all the visibly frustrated BYT coach had to say.

Kilanas' lead at the top of the table isn't set in stone though, as the four remaining clubs in the 10-team league all take to the field tomorrow.

Lun Bawang host Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Football Team (BIBD FT) at the Batu Apoi Sports Complex in Batu Apoi, Temburong, at 3pm, while over at the other end of the Sultanate in the Belait district, Brunei Shell Football Team go up against league debutants Rimba Star FC at the Brunei Shell Recreation Club in Seria at 4pm.

Revamped Kota Ranger Look To Secure DST BPL II (PLAY-OFF DRAW)

Bandar Seri Begawan - Kota Ranger are optimistic of keeping their hope of playing in the DST Group Brunei Premier League II (BPL II) alive.

Last season's BPL II basement dwellers Kota Ranger will have to fight against five other teams in contention for a spot in the lower tier of Brunei football in the playoff starting February 27.

"We're definitely ready to tackle the play-offs. However, I can't say that I'm confident because it's a strong group. So we're aiming to at least notch a win and a draw. The most important match will be the first one," said Kota Ranger manager and coach Md Isa Hj Marsidi.

"The team had been put into a total overhaul. None of the players from last season are in the squad this season, 100 per cent new players. So I will need their cooperation to make it through because as the manager I'll only be at the sidelines during the match," he said.

"It is them who will feel the pressure on the field," he added.

Kota Ranger were made aware of their fate during the BPL II play-off draw held at the Football Federation of Brunei Darussalam (FFBD) office in Kiulap yesterday.

Chaired by FFBD secretariat Johari Hj Bungsu and attended by the managers vying for a berth in the BPL II,

Kota Ranger were placed into Group B alongside Viva Rangers and the Royal Brunei Police Forces' Sports Council, Setia Perdana, Sabli's FC and Rimba Star FC round up Group A.

The leaders of each respective group will then contest in the final, to be held at the Berakas Sports Complex on March 12 at 8.15pm.

Viva Rangers, Sabli's FC and Rimba Star FC took part in the DST FA Cup qualification matches last season.

Not since the 2004/05 season have non-league teams been given the opportunity to play in the competition.

The nine confirmed teams in BPL II this year are Brunei Shell Football Team, Muara Vella FC, Perkasa, Lun Bawang, Kilanas FC, Menglait FC, Brunei Youth (Under-16), Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Football Team (BIBD FT) and DST Group Football Team.

BIBD FT were formerly known as the Brunei Associations of Banks.

Meanwhile the 10 teams in the BPI, I this season are defending champions QAF FC, the Royal Brunei Armed Forces' Sports Council (MS ABDB), Majra FC, term-long FC <--(Typo kah BT?? Perasan ku Jerudong kali??), Wijaya FC, AH United, AM Gunners FC, Indera FC, hang(?? Liang kali ah!!) Lumut Recreation Club Football Learn (LLRC FT) and the Prisons Department.

The BPL I will kick-off on March 8 while the first match of the BPL II is scheduled for March 25.

BPL I and II to start in March

Saturday, January 29, 2011

THE Football Federation of Brunei Darussalam (FFBD) ended months of speculation and hearsay yesterday when it announced that the local football season will kick-off on March 5.

It will be a familiar sight for fans of the sport when they take to the Berakas Sports Complex at 8.15pm to watch the Champions' Cup clash between two of the Sultanate's powerhouses, QAF FC and Royal Brunei Armed Forces' Sports Council (MS ABDB).

The DST Group Brunei Premier League (BPL) I will kick-off on March 8 while the first match of the BPL II is scheduled for March 25.

The BPL I will start earlier because it is played in a home and away format, so there are more games.

The uncertainty surrounding the start of the leagues has been the talk of the local football community for many months and Sheikh Nordin Sheikh Mohamad instantly addressed the issue during a meeting attended by club representatives yesterday.

"On behalf of FFBD I want to apologise for the lateness in organising the tournaments ... But there were reasons beyond our control," said the FFBD secretary-general.

"FFBD had negotiations with sponsors in December, so you can see, there have been steps to organise the leagues that ran last year.

"As usual the curtain-raiser will be the Champions' Cup where once again QAF FC will face MS ABDB," he added during the gathering at a restaurant in Kiulap.

This time last year both leagues had already entered the second round, with QAF FC and Liang Lumut Recreation Club Football Team (LLRC FT) undefeated and leading the pack in BPL I and BPL II respectively.

QAF FC are the titleholders in the Champions' Cup after beating MS ABDB 2-0 in May 2009. They also won the BPL I and DST Group Brunei League Cup title, edging the army men in both competitions the former by two points and the latter by a 1-0 scoreline.

The 10 teams in the BPL I this season are defending champions QAF FC, MS ABDB, Majra FC, Jerudong FC, Wijaya FC, AH United, AM Gunners FC, Indera FC, Liang Lumut Recreation Club Football Team (LLRC FT) and the Prisons Department.

LLRC FT and Prisons Department were promoted from BPL II after ending the season as champions and runners-up respectively. Both teams ended the season undefeated.

The nine confirmed teams in BPL II this year are Brunei Shell Football Team, Muara Vella FC, Perkasa, Lun Bawang, Kilanas FC, Menglait FC, Brunei Youth (Under-16), Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Football Team (BIBD FT) and DST Group Football Team.

BIBD FT were formerly known as the Brunei Associations of Banks.

Last year's BPL II basement dwellers, Kota Ranger, will have to fight for their confirmation in this year's competition.

They will compete in a play-off against several teams that have applied to join the BPL II.

It is understood that the Royal Brunei Police Force are one of the interested parties.

Sheikh Nordin also assured the representatives that the other two DST Group tournaments, as well as the national age-group competitions, will be back in 2011.

"The DST Group Brunei FA Cup will be held and as usual it will be conducted in a knock-out format. We will open the competition to more non-league teams, like how they do it in England," he said.

"The DST Group Brunei League Cup will also be contested.

"The National Under-14 and Under-16 leagues will continue. The plan is for the Under-16 league to start before the Under-14 league, probably at the same time as the BPL I in March," he added.

Plans for similar leagues at the Under-10 and Under-12 age groups were also revealed, though the secretary-general said there was no guarantee they would get off the ground this year.

He also talked about the possibility of setting up a futsal league late in the year after the conclusion of the four DST Group BPL tournaments to give footballers year-long competition.

The issue of having imports for this season was also raised, and though nothing was set in stone, Sheikh Nordin said that it was his personal opinion it would not be a wise decision since not all teams could afford foreign players.

The uncertainty surrounding Brunei's status in world football might also make it hard for players to get international transfer certificates (ITC) to play in the Sultanate since the FFBD is not recognised internationally.The Brunei Times
