Manchester United (MU) and Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) forged a five-year agreement to link the two brands in marketing campaigns and promotional activities.

Since the partnership was formed, there were numerous advertising and marketing events done by TM which relates to MU.
MU was having a 12-day Champions Trophy Tour around Asia and Malaysia was one of the countries they visited. As TM is the EPL champion's official integrated telecommunications partner in Malaysia, we have the privilege to meet and autographed by one of the best goalkeepers of the era - Edwin Van Der Sar.
The trophy was placed next to the footballer but seems that everyone forgot about it. Even I forgot to snap a photo of the trophy.
Just few days back, TM released a TV commercial on how a young Malaysian boy overcome all the obstacles to be a world-class footballer. The tagline of the ad is "Turning Possibilities into Reality". [Watch Video]
For sure we're gonna see more of MU's collaboration with TM in the future. Perhaps there will there be more MU fans signing up TM's packages because of that? Billy, out.
