We wish to inform that Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) is no longer a sponsor for the Malaysian League from 2019 onwards.

 

TM denies that it has not met any obligations. We would like to clarify that TM and Malaysian Football League LLP (MFL) were unable to mutually agree on several fundamental commercial terms necessary for the intended collaboration. Despite several extensions of the agreed deadline to sign the definitive agreement, both parties were unable to arrive at an understanding. In view of this, on 1 November 2018, TM duly notified MFL in writing that the partnership has come to an end.  

 

TM continues to be supportive of Malaysian sports and its athletes.

 

This announcement is dated 18 March 2019.
