Malakoff Organises Annual Friendly Football Match with NRECC

15 July 2023

On 15th July 2023, Malakoff Corporation Berhad (“Malakoff”) held its annual friendly football match with the Energy Sector Division from Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (“NRECC”) at Padang Bola Sepak Sintetik, Presint 8, Putrajaya as part of its continuous engagement and relationship building with key stakeholders. This anticipated annual event that has been held for the past 11 years, has successfully garnered encouraging participation with both teams rallying into the field to demonstrate their skills.

Attended by the Deputy Secretary General (Energy, Environment and Climate Change) of NRECC, YBhg Dato’ Mohamad Razif bin Haji Abd Mubin and the Principal Assistant Secretary 3 (Policy and Electricity Supply Planning Section), Encik Amisam Ismail, the match commenced with the NRECC team scoring the first goal in the first half of the game, putting the Malakoff team on their toes while relentlessly defending a streak of attacks from the NRECC team. The intensity of the match escalated when the Malakoff team managed to equalise their score, hitting strikes after strikes simultaneously bringing the Malakoff team inches closer to grasping the coveted trophy.

Through a great display of commitment and dedication, Malakoff emerged as champion when a final goal was scored right before the second half of the game ended, resulting in a 2 – 1 score.

The event proceeded with a trophy handover ceremony by YBhg Dato’ Mohamad Razif to the winner of the match, Malakoff team, for the first time in six years. Although luck was not on the NRECC team's side, the presence of supporters from both participating teams gave the players motivation and strength to show their best performances.

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. 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.
