KUALA LUMPUR (6 March 2012)
– Former champions SMK Tunku Anum of Kedah will take on SMK Seberang Temerloh of Pahang in the season opening Charity Shield match of the Minister of Education League Cup-100PLUS 2012 on 17 March this year.

This was announced by Tuan Haji Sufa’at Tumin, the deputy director general of the Ministry of Education at a press conference that was held at the Bukit Jalil Sports School this afternoon that was also attended by Puan Cariessa Goh, the Corporate Affairs manager of F&N Beverages Marketing Sdn. Bhd.

“The continued organization of the Minister of Education League Cup (MELC) this year showed that the Ministry of Education is committed to the development of age-group football in the country,” said Tuan Haji Sufa’at.

“And this year the Charity Shield game between SMK Tunku Anum and SMK Seberang Temerloh will be played at the new Sukan Sekolah Malaysia in Gambang which is the third national sports school after the one here in Bukit Jalil and also the Tengku Mahkota Ismail Sports School in Johor.”

The MELC began in 2008 with the aim of providing a platform for young Malaysian footballers the opportunity to play football throughout the year instead of carnival-based tournaments.

With 15 teams battling it out each week all over the country including Sabah and Sarawak, the MELC has proven to be very competitive in the last four editions. No single team has been able to stamp their authority and win the title twice in a row.

  

SMK Seksyen 11 from Selangor were the winners in 2008 with Bandar Penawar Sports School (now known as Tengku Mahkota Ismail Sports School) winning it a year later. In 2010, the title went to SMK Tunku Anum from Kedah as SMK Bukit Nenas from Terengganu were crowned champions in 2011.

“For 100PLUS, the success of the MELC has proven that our continued support of youth development programmes at the national level is an important way forward not only for our corporate idealism but also in helping the country’s progress,” added Puan Cariessa.

The MELC and 100PLUS Super Cup are among several youth programmes and competitions supported by 100PLUS, Malaysia’s leading isotonic beverage.

The others include the 100PLUS Malaysian Junior Golf Open and the 100PLUS National Junior Badminton Circuit. 100PLUS is recommended by the National Sports Council.
