Sharing important news and updates for you and the community
On 17 November 2023, Malakoff Corporation Berhad (“Malakoff”) held a friendly football tournament with media practitioners at EV Arena in Shah Alam. Simultaneously serving as an informal meetup, this momentous occasion was aimed at enhancing good working relationships with the members of the media from various industries and publications.
The event followed a four-half-round setup, allowing participants to establish a foundation before demonstrating their skills in a friendly competition, all while contending for victory.
Upon hearing the whistle to commemorate the start of the game, both teams contending in the first round were seen dribbling the ball around to manoeuvre their way in before performing numerous strike attempts to take the lead in the score board. By this point, cheers and support from the spectators were heard, which added an overwhelming excitement into the subsequent rounds. The first goal was finally made by Yasir Jaafar from Team Media setting a benchmark for the other teams to follow suit.
After close to two hours, the champion of this friendly football tournament emerged as Team Media. The evening became unforgettable as each person displayed their competitive spirit, making it a night to be remembered.
This initiative is part of Malakoff’s continuous engagement with its key stakeholders through activities that can further cultivate the spirit of ‘silaturrahim’ while enhancing our working relationship towards fulfilling shared goals and objectives. It is also in line with our commitment towards the UN Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 that promotes healthy lives and well-being for all at all ages, and No. 17 that encourages stronger partnerships that will contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development.
We would like to thank everyone involved for the camaraderie and great display of sportsmanship, and we hope to see you again next time.
