Venue management company and events producer ASM Global has partnered with the Malaysian Ministry of Youth and Sports via Perbadanan Stadium Malaysia (PSM) to manage operations and event activities at the Kuala Lumpur Sports City complex in Bukit Jalil, located around 20km south of the city centre.

The move expands ASM Global’s portfolio in Asia with the addition of the sporting and events destination, the largest in Malaysia and a former site of the 2017 Southeast Asian Games. The complex encompasses the 87,400 capacity Malaysia National Stadium and the multi-purpose indoor 16,000 seater Axiana Arena, among other venues.

Chairman and chief executive of ASM Global Asia Pacific and Gulf Region, Harvey Lister AM, said the group is delighted to partner with Kuala Lumpur Sports City management in a joint endeavour to establish the complex as a vibrant community and event hub.

“This is further indication of the robust growth of the region and endorsement of the expansion of our regional business activities following the establishment of locally based headquarters," he remarked.

ASM Global will partner with Malaysian company, Sportswork, in delivering services for Kuala Lumpur Sports City.

Malaysia Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu said: “We see this MOU as a great opportunity for PSM and ASM Global to enhance Kuala Lumpur Sports City to a premier destination in the global sports and event industry.”

The agreement is indicative of the Malaysian government’s ambition to see Kuala Lumpur Sports City develop a world-class reputation as the host of leading sports and community as well as large-scale entertainment and business events.
