Online shopping site Shopee has become the title sponsor of Malaysia’s FA Cup, and will also serve as the ticketing platform for the tournament through a partnership with Football Malaysia (FMLLP).
The Malaysian-based e-commerce site will allow fans to purchase match tickets and other related merchandise during the football tournament.
FMLLP has signed a deal with Shopee for the firm to become the title sponsor for the 2018 FA Cup, which kicks off today (Friday).
Under the agreement, the tournament will be rebranded as the 2018 Shopee Malaysia FA Cup.
Shopee’s store page already lists eight matches from the FA Cup and Super League that have already sold out.
In addition, football fans in the country have taken advantage of the new partnership’s promotional offer of buy-one-get-one-free tickets.
Shopee is also giving their users a chance to win VIP and normal tickets to the FA Cup final when they purchase match tickets.
