“For us, issuing the MFL stamps further shows our commitment towards this partnership. Additionally, it is an awesome opportunity for us to tap into the local football fan base to build our brand trust and brand loyalty, while bringing joy, excitement and happiness to a game that is loved by millions. As the national postal service provider, we are passionate in building trust to connect lives and businesses, and delivering the smiles to the last mile,” said Brewer.


MFL President, Dato' Ab Ghani Hassan said, “MFL is definitely pleased by this effort and welcomes Pos Malaysia with open arms. The effort will deliver something different to our local football fans to get their own collection of favourite players and teams. The special edition stamp collection is considered as a meaningful material especially it is in line with the upcoming 96th edition of TM Piala Malaysia, the most prestigious tournament in the country.
