Malaysia has been no stranger to being the centre of international sporting events – a facet of the nation which has grown in leaps and bounds over the last decade. The country has become a big part of the international sporting arena with a strong track record of hosting a myriad of international sporting events held annually. Ranked as one of the best value destinations in the world, Malaysia is very affordable for event participants and spectators.
A true testament to Malaysia’s competency as an international sporting hub was when the country was chosen to host the 15th Laureus World Sports Awards in 2014. In addition, there are yearly international events namely the PETRONAS Formula One motor race, the PGA sanctioned golf events CIMB Classic Golf and the Maybank Malaysian Open which had seen the likes of top golfers like Tiger Wood and Rory McIlroy, to the delights of local and international spectators.
