ASEAN Football Federation executive elections

ASEAN Football Federation President, Ahmad Rithauddeen Tengku Ismail was unanimously re-elected to lead the South East Asian football management body for another term at the recent 14th AFF Congress. Rithauddeen, a Malaysian, has been the AFF President since 1995. Paul Mony Samuel, the Asian Football Confederation General Secretary, was also unanimously returned as the AFF's Honorary Secretary for another term. Four new Vice-Presidents, Pengiran Matusin Matasan from Brunei, Ravy Khek from Cambodia, Juan Miguel Romualdez of the Philippines and Duong Vu Lam of Vietnam, were elected. Phouvanh Vongsouthi of Laos and Francisco Kalbuadi of East Timor were appointed to the AFF Executive Committee.

Both Australia and the Maldives are members of the Asian Football Confederation's ASEAN Group for administrative reasons but have not been accepted into membership of the ASEAN Football Federation and its ASEAN Football Champrionship (formerly Tiger Cup).
