MFL sue TM for RM400m

The Malaysian Football League (MFL) have filed a summon worth RM400 million against Telekom Malaysia (TM) due to what they believe is a breach of contract.

The action was taken following TM’s official statement which announced that they are no longer sponsors of the Malaysia League (M-League) from 2019 onwards while denying that they have failed to fulfill their end of the deal.

MFL, however are claiming that TM have breached their contract by trying to add new terms and conditions which completely contradict what was previously agreed upon by both parties.

An official statement by MFL read:”The duration of the sponsorship contract which was signed between us and TM is for eight years, starting from January 2018 till 2025. The terms and conditions were agreed upon on January 2018 and a joint official statement titled ‘unifi unites Malaysians through football’ was made by FMLLP and TM on 1 February 2018 to announce our collaboration.

“Unfortunately after that, TM suggested new terms including changes to the base terms which have been signed and agreed upon. Some of the terms that TM wanted to be included were clearly contradicting what was already agreed upon by both parties previously and would make the deal between MFL and TM unstable and unfair.

“Due to that, it was impossible for us to comply and it seemed like TM were finding for a way to escape their obligations to the conditions which were agreed upon and signed.”
