While the Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games will only begin on 19 August, some of the sports events are already taking place from today onward, such as men’s football and netball. In fact, Malaysia will be involved in the opening match against Thailand in netball and Brunei for football.
Truth be told, the best way to experience sports is to be at the venues themselves especially with our own athletes in action. But since many of the SEA Games events takes place on weekdays, some of us might not be able to make it there ourselves. If you find yourself in that very position, fret not as you can still catch Malaysian athletes in action online.
