KUALA LUMPUR - The National Football Development Programme (NFDP) will remain a government policy to achieve footballing excellence, no matter who leads the Ministry of Youth and Sports in the future.

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the programme, which celebrates its third anniversary Sunday, had received approval from the Cabinet prior to its implementation.

"This is a national programme launched by Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) and during the launch, he had said this was a national programme. When it is a national policy or programme, anyone who becomes the Youth and Sports Minister has to continue," he told reporters during a special interview.

NFDP was launched on April 10, 2014 by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, along with the Mokhtar Dahari National Football Academy in Cherating, Pahang, as an effort to restore the glory of football in the country, and to become a force to be reckoned with on the international stage.

The plan, supported by the government as a whole, is not limited to the Ministry of Youth and Sports, and includes the likes of the Ministry of Education and the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).
