I’m sure most football fans are well aware of South American clubs named after others places from around the world. From Barcelona SC in Ecuador to Argentina’s Arsenal to Everton based on Chile; they all have a fascinating story to tell.
However club that is named after Malaysia? Well that is something else.
A few weeks back, a tweet from @hafeizh29 went viral because he managed to discover a team all the way from Montevideo, Uruguay named Malasia FC. Malasia is actually the Spanish translation for Malaysia.
We knew this will be an interesting story, hence why we decided to reach out to them via Instagram and asked if they would like to feature in our podcast. The answer was an instant yes, and they were truly honoured to be our guest.
What was the inspiration behind the name? How is their journey so far? We tried to cover everything on this episode.
