The 4 year sponsorship agreement not only covers the sponsorship of badminton products to the MMU Team players, but also includes special discount on PROTECH products for MMU Badminton Club (Melaka Campus). In addition, the sponsorship agreement also covers sponsorship of PROTECH products as prizes in all the tournaments organized by MMU Badminton Club (Melaka Campus); which includes the annual MMU MASTERS Badminton Championship which is held around the month of April yearly at AYER KEROH SPORTS CENTRE (Melaka).
The sponsorship agreement with PROTECH SPORTS follows the recent long-term Collaboration Agreement signed between AYER KEROH SPORTS CENTRE (Melaka) and MMU Student Affairs Department (on behalf of MMU Badminton Club – Melaka Campus).
On behalf of MMU, Mr. Omarrudin in his capacity as the STAD Acting Director, signed the sponsorship agreement.

In addition, also present during the ceremony was current national badminton singles player Chong Wei Feng who is currently one of the PROTECH Brand Ambassador.
Multimedia University or in short known as MMU, was created as a result of a mandate given the Malaysian Government to Telekom Malaysia, Malaysia’s giant telecommunication company in July 1996 to set up the first private university in Malaysia. As the first private university in Malaysia, MMU developed the pioneer model for the successful establishment of private universities in the nation, paving the way for the growth of the private tertiary education sector. As the university at the heart of the MSC, MMU serves the premier university for ICT and Creative Multimedia, as well as its related industries in Malaysia, supporting the government’s aspiration of developing the knowledge economy of the country.
Envisioned to be a world class university, MMU is proud of its close relations with various key industry players such as Agilent Technologies, Microsoft, INTEL, SISCO, Juniper Network, Huawei Technologies, IBM and high quality R & D activities, modern laboratory & instruction facilities, innovative teaching techniques and its active role as a catalyst for the development of MSC.
MMU offers its innovative undergraduate and postgraduate programs not only to local bright young brains but also to aspiring students from all over the world as we believe that a multicultural, multinational campus will enrich the social and cultural diversities of students’ experiences. Students studying at the university will have the opportunity to meet people from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds and further develop a cross cultural understanding among them.
MMU fulfills the noblest of corporate social responsibilities – taking up the challenge of educating the next generation of the nation’s leaders and knowledge workers.
