MALDIVES INTEREST IN SOCCER PRINCE SHOW
Our reality TV show Soccer Prince has unearthed football talent in countries like China, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam and could now produce a Prince from Paradise.
The beautiful Maldives in the Indian Ocean is close to completing a deal with our joint format owners Fremantlemedia to take our show to the island.
The Island boasts its own national team which is a member of the Asian Football Confederation. In 2006 the tiny island team progressed to the second qualifying stage of the World Cup earning a creditable 0-0 draw with South Korea.
It even has its own league, the Dhivehi Premier League which boasts eight teams and there is a Maldivian FA cup.
Subject to the successful completion of formalities pre-production will commence later this year (2016) with broadcast before the year end.
