Kerteh FC & Ghazoo Sports - The Kemaman-Perth connection
Bila tengok apa @KertehFC buat, teruja giler. Bayangkan kelab seperti ini boleh buat lebih dari PAFA. Owner Ghazoo Sports @GhazRamli ni pernah datang ke @peraktbgmy tapi PAFA pulak senyap seribu bahasa. @HareshDeol pernah cover isu ni tapi tak jumpa pulak artikelnya. https://t.co/GdEuS4buuy— 𝔐 𝔞 𝔰 𝔲 𝔱 𝔥 (@Nuraka_Jiwa) February 14, 2021
One is a football club located in the east coast of Pennisular Malaysia known for its delicious food, warm people and annual floods.
The other is a set-up based in Perth.
Here's a story about Kemaman's Kerteh FC and Ghazoo Sports - a sports company run by an Ipoh-mali who is now residing in Australia but has thankfully retained his Malaysian accent.
It's a commercial tie up between the two small yet bold outfits covering Australia and New Zealand.
It's taken Ghaz Ramli, a former journalist, four years to entice a Malaysian club. As I wrote in 2017, Ghaz held talks with Perak FA but I guess that didn't work out.
More details of the tie-up will be revealed soon on Twentytwo13. After all, Ghaz has been writing regularly for the Kuala Lumpur-based news website.
Will this venture open the eyes of other teams in Malaysia - including that of Perak FA? We shall see.
All the best to Kerteh FC and Ghazoo Sports. It's time to do things differently.
