ABOUT AIRMARINE CUP
Airmarine (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. Founder and Executive Chairman, Dato’ Ananth hold earnest interest in football and it was his decision to develop and present the Airmarine Cup – organised and sanctioned by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) & International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) – it is motivated by the synergies between our company and local football.
As a leading integrated logistics service and supply chain solutions provider, Airmarine provides strong belief that Malaysians are well talented to compete in the world arena.
This is the motivation behind the creation of the Airmarine Cup. We would like to see the national football team take full advantage of this tournament to continue the national’s shared quest for excellence.
The arrival of the Airmarine Cup also serves to boost the FAM’s 12-year roadmap, F:30, which is designed to lift the national team into one of the best five in Asia within the year 2030.
Our funding of the Airmarine Cup fulfils the need for a corporate company to assist the FAM in further developing our national team. It is not easy for a governing sports body to secure corporate funding, more so for a tournament of this magnitude, and Airmarine considers this support as part of our efforts in serving the nation.
