Malaysian football is set to receive a financial lift as the Football Association of Malaysia is close to finalising major sponsorship deals for its M-League.

The Association’s head, Azzuddin Ahmad, confirmed the companies poised to sign on with football in Malaysia are major sport sponsors but he was unable to reveal their identity because contracts were yet to be signed.

Football Malaysia’s Vice President, Seri Subahan Kamal said the country’s government should help the sport by encouraging companies to aid the development of football in the country.{jcomments on}
