Kedah urge fans to help team survive financial crisis by interacting with sponsors

PETALING JAYA: Kedah’s financial travails have been well publicised and among all the teams in the Super League, they are the only side without a main sponsor.

They are working day and night to look for a big sponsor, with team owner Tan Sri Daud Bakar revealing that if they can’t find one, the team will struggle financially throughout the season.

“We are pleased to announce that Kedah have been appointed as a master dealer for XOX, a telecommunications company that sells postpaid and prepaid plans. We hope the fans would purchase and help us,” he said.

“We’ve also made an affiliation with E-Desa, an e-commerce company that would be selling provisions and we hope the fans would download the app and help the club make some income.

“Then there are food and beverage companies also with us. All these are part of Kedah’s plans to increase the club’s income to sustain the team for the season.
