On 4 September 2023, Multimedia University (MMU) and the Kuala Lumpur Football Association (KLFA) inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the Cyberjaya campus. This pact marked the first-ever partnership between the university and a professional football association. The MoU was signed by Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mazliham Mohd Su’ud, President of MMU, and Mr. Syed Yazid Syed Omar, Vice President of KLFA.
Through this collaboration, KLFA will share expertise in coaching, fitness, physiotherapy, and tactics, aiming to boost the level of higher education-level football competitions. It also assists in enhancing the development of MMU students, particularly those involved with the MMU Football Club (MMUFC), and potentially nurturing highly educated professional football talent.
Among other event attendees were Prof. Ir. Dr. Wong Hin Yong, Vice President of Academic and Innovative Learning (VP AIR); Prof. Ir. Dr. Hairul Azhar Abdul Rashid, Vice President of Market Exploration, Engagement, and Touchpoint (VP MEET); Prof. Dr. Wong Eng Kiong, Vice President of Student Experience and Entrepreneurship Development (VP SEED); KLFA delegation; and MMU officials.
