Opportunities for co-branding

“First, I represent the MFL President, Dato’ Ab Ghani Hassan, the Board of Directors, and the clubs in wishing a warm welcome to Uphamol, as MFL are very proud to receive them as new sponsors in Liga Malaysia,” said Stuart Ramalingam, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysian Football League.

“For MFL, this is a new combination where health products provide support and enhance the excitement of the local league. This partnership certainly provides a positive signal that Liga Malaysia has succeeded in attracting the attention of many commercial parties.
