KUCHING, Feb 18: The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Entrepreneur Development and Sarawak government will provide assistance to Kuching City Football Club (KCFC) if it is needed and if the club requests for it.

Its Minister Dato Sri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said since starting from a humble local club, KCFC has become one of the contenders in the Malaysia Super League representing Sarawak and its football fans.

He said the club has received not much support from the government previously and also has yet to seek seek support from his ministry.

“So do come over when you need the support. I think, when you have reached this level already, put aside that humbleness, do come and approach us.

“We want to sit down with you and find a way on where we can assist you too,” he added.

Abdul Karim said this during the launching ceremony of KCFC new jersey held at Kuching Waterfront yesterday (Feb 17).

“Sarawakian are indeed very proud of the achievements of KCFC as it now competes with the best in the Malaysian Super League.

“We are witnessing what could be the start of another golden generation in football where Sarawak can be among the footballing elites and it starts here at home, with KCFC,” he said. — DayakDaily
