Carlton visiting Penang from 26th-28th January as part of Tourism Malaysia tie-up

Asia

The Old Dark Navy Blues are visting Penang as part of a promotional tour following their recent sponsorship with Tourism Malaysia. It is not known as to whether Fev will make the trip, or whether the locals have been briefed on what to expect.

The club will take along a TV crew from Channel 10 station and leading football writer Mike Sheahan and a photographer from the Melbourne Herald Sun newspaper.

Apart from daily reports in the newspaper, the television station will have live crossovers throughout the three days in its news and sports bulletins.

“This will be fantastic for Malaysia,” Tourism Malaysia’s Melbourne director Putra Hilmy Elias told Bernama.

Tourism Malaysia has signed a sponsorship package with the Carlton Football Club.

Do you know if the local Malaysian Aussie Rules club has tried to get involved at all? Good chance for some local promotion.

Yes, that is an item on the agenda for the newly elected committee of the Malaysian Warriors. Actually, as a result of Kevin "Cowboy" Neale attendance at last years AFL GF function some overtures had been made to StKilda, but now that Carlton have this arrangement obviously they are a better bet. The real question is however, is what value can each party add to the other.
