TM has announced an immersive digital experience that can be enjoyed by local football fans and Harimau Malaya supporters in a combined effort with the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).
As the Official Technology Partner for FAM and Harimau Malaya, TM, through Unifi Mobile, has teamed up with Fresnel Group of Companies to revolutionise the home football viewing experience. With innovations such as 360° Live Streaming of matches and a Virtual Reality (VR) Tour of the National Stadium Bukit Jalil powered by 5G, fans will enjoy an enhanced experience when cheering for our national team during the upcoming Pestabola Merdeka, both at home and on-the-go.
On 13th October, fans can experience the Malaysia vs India match from diverse angles in a stunning 8K quality made possible through 360° Live Streaming, enabled by 5G technology. This immersive experience is delivered through dual 360° cameras strategically positioned at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil’s grandstand and goalposts, offering a one-of-a-kind viewing experience that allows fans to be virtually part of the action and feel the pulsating energy of the stadium. Malaysians are invited to immerse into this experience by tuning in to Unifi’s YouTube channel.
Football gets interactive
Hardcore football enthusiasts should also not miss the opportunity for an interactive VR Stadium Tour, exclusively accessible through Unifi Mobile Prepaid’s Limited Edition Harimau Malaya starter packs. This unique experience offers fans the chance to explore National Stadium Bukit Jalil – the proud home of Harimau Malaya. Fans will gain access to iconic behind-the-scenes locations including locker rooms and training facilities, previously unseen by the public. Through UNI5G, fans can virtually experience the excitement of the pitch as if they were physically present there, all from the comfort of their own homes or while on the go.
Shanti Jusnita, TM’s Chief Marketing Officer said, “We are proud to partner with FAM and Fresnel Group of Companies in supporting Harimau Malaya and our local football scene. We have always seen football to be a bridge where Malaysians come together to support our Harimau Malaya team.
