With changes to the Dhivehi League this year there are 4 teams in the league from atoll islands. The teams are Dh. Kudahuvadhoo, SH. Milandhoo, GDH. Thinadhoo and AA. Maalhos. FAM has decided to upgrade these stadiums to achieve their goals of developing Maldivian football. The grass works of these 4 stadiums will be done by an Indian company and this will start very soon.
Building sports facilities in islands was one of the promises Bassam made during his campaign to becom FAM president. Other than the stadiums in islands, FAM has informed that they will be building a new turf stadium and a new building for FAM. The turf will be started to construct during this October.
These turf stadiums are going under FIFA’s Goal Project. The current two turf stadiums in Male’ and the turf stadium in S. Hithadhoo were built with help from FIFA.
