Malaysia (and Asia) have never seen a sporting spectacle like a Touch World Cup. Most world cup of sports are watched by a spectator audience watching a single game.
The 2019 Touch World Cup involves up to 13 fields starting simultaneously involving 26 teams and 39 referees on each field – all starting and stopping to the same time cycle; with games commencing on a 55-minute sequence, some 10 plus game starts every day for the 6 day’s,
FIT Touch is a unique and independent sport that attracts males and females of all ages whom enjoy competition from a social level to competition that involves elite athletes.
The 9th FIT Touch World Cup will be made possible due to the support of Perbadanan Putrajaya and the management of Taman Ekuestrian Putrajaya.
We look forward to collaborating with sponsors large and small that will be essential to the professional delivery of this World Cup of sport.
