Malaysia Airlines parties with Charity Cup

Malaysia Airlines has commenced its promotion of the English Premier League in Asia with support for a pre-season party in Kuala Lumpur, capital city of Malaysia. Fans of Arsenal and Chelsea attending the Community Shield party at Hartamas Square were offered Malaysia Airlines flight tickets to London and tickets to watch EPL matches. The fans were also treated to a soccer skills demonstration by students from the Brazilian Football Academy.

MAS managing director, Datuk Ahmad Fuaad Dahlan, said the EPL season is a celebration which brings people together in the spirit of sporting excellence. "This is an opportunity to increase our added services and improve the quality of our business offering," he said, as quoted by the Malay Mail.

Malaysia Airlines is the sponsor of the ESPN STAR Sport Asia broadcast of the Barclaycard English Premier League for the 2005/2006 and 2006/2007 seasons.
