Football Malaysia and iflix have entered into an exclusive joint venture for live streaming of Liga Super, Piala Malaysia and Piala FA matches.

The all-new Football Malaysia on iflix channel will deliver action from the entire professional football season, including 22 rounds with six matches weekly for Liga Super, 74 Piala FA and Piala Malaysia tournament matches as well as select Liga Premier matches and the Piala Sumbangsih match. In addition to live streamed matches, users will be able to access new features, including match highlights and player interviews.

Anyone with internet access will be able to live stream four Liga Super matches every week along with 46 tournament matches and select Liga Premier matches for free, regardless of their subscription status. New users and those with an active iflix subscription will further be able to live stream, catch up and enjoy all matches and features.

Football Association of Malaysia President and Football Malaysia Chairman, the Crown Prince of Johor, Tunku Ismail ibni Sultan Ibrahim commented: “I am a firm believer and supporter of unity and moderation in our diverse nation. Football is the people’s game. It brings us together and can help to unite us. Malaysians everywhere should be able to enjoy it without restriction. With iflix, we have found like-minded partners and a key common goal; to return football to the people and restore its former glory.”

iflix Group Co-founder and Chairman Patrick Grove said: “Over the last twenty years, I have founded several businesses here with the ambition of making the things Malaysians most want, more accessible and easier to find, from homes and cars to news, culture and entertainment, and now Malaysians’ greatest love, football. This country has given me so much both on a personal and professional level. It’s our turn to give back.

“This collaboration with Football Malaysia represents exactly what we created iflix to achieve. Together, we will democratize the game, making football available for the first time to fans, regardless of geographic location and financial status. We are thrilled to write sports history, and both give fans a virtual front row seat to the nation’s top sporting event as well as help build the future of the football giving access to millions of potential fans that previously would not have been able to enjoy the game. For the first time ever, all premier Malaysian football matches will be available live on a single platform.”
