FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Wednesday met the newly elected Football Association of Malawi (FAM)  President Fleetwood Haiya in Saudi Arabia to officially welcome him to the international football family.

Speaking to the newly elected FAM President, Infantino said it was a great pressure to listen to Haiya’s ideas for developing football in Malawi.

” It was a great pleasure to meet the new Football Association of Malawi President Fleetwood Haiya and listen to his very detailed and far-reaching plans for developing football in his country.

“We talked about the importance of good infrastructure for football development and the role that football can play in education. Malawi is a country with a huge football potential and, with the support of the FIFA Forward development programme and the increased opportunities for member associations to participate in global competitions, I believe that together we can put Malawian football in the spotlight.” Said Infantino.

After meeting Infantino, Haiya is expected to attend the FIFA World Club Championship and the FIFA football summit.
