MCOBA Weekly Bulletin
17 March 2017
1. We are the Alumni League Champions!
MCOBA won 2-1 against STAROBA. This sweet victory was courtesy of goals scored by Dhob and Dekwan c07.
After two consecutive years of being second best in the league, MCOBA won the match against STAROBA in the Final game of Alumni League, collecting 19 points in 7 games; 5 points clear on top of the league, undefeated this season and crowned as the Champion of Liga Alumni for the first time since the tournament was first introduced. This season, we’ve won the Alumni League Championship and played in the Ansara Cup and Alumni Cup Finals.
The Piala Kebangsaan Final is coming up next month, and we hope for another win to complete the title sweep. Please contact Raja Azraff (60 19 214 0724, [email protected]) if you would like to help the team financially. The team is looking forward to your support.
Thank you to the players for their commitment and fighting spirit throughout the season, and our appreciation to the supporters who gave their support and prayers. Bungwak!

2. Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on MCOBA-UEM Sunrise Bhd. Development Agreement (DA)
An EGM will be held at the Penthouse, MCOBA Building on 25 March 2017 at 2pm. The EGM will share the key terms and mechanism of the DA, and we will be seeking your approval to proceed. In the meantime, a copy of the DA can be viewed at the MCOBA Secretariat, Penthouse, MCOBA Building.
Please note that among the Condition Precedents (CPs) for this project is the approval of MCOBA members in a general meeting to be convened as above. To address any confusion which may arise, it is reiterated that MCOBA’s execution of the DA on 21 Feb. 2017 DOES NOT make it effective until the CPs, which includes approval by members of MCOBA in the EGM are met.
Visuals and other information panels will be put up at the MCOBA Penthouse from 12pm on the EGM day. Members of the Development Committee will also be available to answer any concerns that you may have.
We seek your support to make this a success for the future of our beloved Association.
