Penang FC a ‘dynamic’ force to be reckoned with

THE Penang Football Club, which is performing very well in the Super League, received a big lift when Dynamic Frank Group of Companies today donated RM100,000 as sponsorship to the team.


Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow thanked the company for its kind contribution, saying that to date the Penang FC, which comes under the Chief Minister Incorporated (CMI), has received a total of RM1.8 million in kind and cash.


Chow says the Penang Football Club has already achieved its target of finishing in the top six in the Super League.


“The contribution is definitely an encouragement for sports development, especially football.


“We hope our supporters will continue to support the team.


“The team is a new kid on the block, getting promotion to Super League after playing many years in the lower league.


“Now, under a new management, it has achieved its target of finishing in the top six in the Super League. It is currently in third place with three matches to go – two home and one away,” Chow said after receiving a mock cheque from Dynamic Frank chief executive officer Goldan Beh at Komtar today.


JDT has already clinched the title with an unassailable 48 points from 19 matches.


Lying in second place is Terengganu, which has obtained 37 points from 19 matches. Penang is in third spot with 34 points from 19 matches while Selangor (19 matches) and Kedah (16 matches) are staying close behind with 32 points each.


They are followed by Kuala Lumpur (27 points from 19 matches), Sabah (19 points from 19 matches), PJ City (18 points from 18 matches), Melaka (17 points from 19 matches), Pahang (17 points from 18 matches), Perak (13 points from 19 matches) and UITM (6 points from 18 matches).


Beh says this is the first time Dynamic Frank Group of Companies is adopting a sports CSR initiative.


Beh, whose company was established in 1996 dealing mainly in printing and plastic business, said they would like to see Penang FC succeed.


“We’ve participated in several corporate social responsibility initiatives before, but this is the first time we are embracing the sports CSR initiative,” Beh said.


Also present at the cheque handover ceremony were state Youth and Sports Committee chairman Soon Lip Chee, and the Penang FC board of directors namely state Financial Officer Datuk Dr Mohamad Farazi Johari, state legal adviser Datuk Norazmi Mohd Narawi, deputy State Secretary Datuk Azhar Arshad and CMI deputy general manager Bharathi Suppiah; and Penang FC general manager Jeffrey Chew.
