Sports are more than just a source of entertainment — they can also teach you teamwork and discipline, both of which have placed QNet at the forefront for success.

QNet has had a long history of sports sponsorships, with recent ones including sponsorships for football, automotive sports racing and rugby. Now it’s time to welcome a new sport to our Sports Sponsorships programme — hockey!

QNet has recently signed to be Official Direct Selling Partners to the Malaysian Hockey Federation (MHF). As part of this sponsorship, QNet will be branded in all Malaysian Hockey League matches through A-boards, and in all live telecast matches there will be an award presentation of QNet’s Most Promising Player of the match. QNet will also be branded in all Tun Abdul Razak Championship matches.

Not long ago, MHF launched their Youth programme, 1MAS Hockey Project, with the President of MHF, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Pahang, Tengku Abdullah and Prime Minister of Malaysia, The Right Honourable, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, in attendance.

As official direct selling partners to MHF, QNet was invited to be present at this launch.  QI Executive Chairman, Dato’ Vijay Eswaran, was accorded VIP status. During this event, which was telecasted live on Malaysian TV, the 1975 World Cup Hockey team and current national squad, fresh from their successful outing at the recent Asian Games in Guangzhou, were given tribute. Malaysian Hockey legends such as Poon Fook Loke and M. Mahendran were present there at the event.

QNet’s Most Promising Player Award.

The Malaysian Hockey League kicked off over the weekend on 18 December at the Stadium Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur. Two matches were broadcast live on Malaysian TV. In the first live telecast match, Yayasan Negri Sembilan (YNS) armed with many Pakistani and Indian national players comfortably beat Maybank 4-1. At the end of the match, QNet Malaysia Director, Mr Stevenson Charles handed out the QNet’s Most Promising Player award to the player from Maybank.

In the second live telecast match, UniKL narrowly beat UiTM 3-2 by scoring the third goal in the last play of the match through a penalty corner. It was a heartbreak for the UiTM players as they were leading 2-1 prior to this. QNet’s Most Promising Player medal was awarded to Mohd Hanif Ibrahim from UiTM. QNet Malaysia Director and Deputy Regional Director, Mr Krish Kumar, handed out the award.
