The National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) held its first executive committee (Exco) meeting yesterday at the NFABD House in Berakas.
This is after Brunei's governing body for football held the 5th Extraordinary Congress to reelect its Exco for the 2013-2015 term on March 9.

HRH touched on the visions and missions of NFABD in the short, mid and long terms in his sabda.
