Seems that Tourism Malaysia had their backs to the wall in so far as signing up with the Australian club was concerned. This was because the deal was already agreed upon before the Chelsea proposal came through.
Still, with no formal documents having being signed, surely Tourism could have backed out from investing their money for a club in Australan Rules Football.
The argument it seems was that the target market is now Australia and not England. So it was fine for Tourism to go ahead and pay mega bucks for Manchester United last season when Malaysian Airlines had stopped flying there some two years ago. But when offered a chance to be the Official Holiday Destination of Chelsea FC, someone in Tourism forgot that it is one of the worlds most watched teams.

News is filtering in that the so called tie up between Chelsea and the Tourism Ministry may now be off.

And instead we might just be told of a tie up with an Australian football club. Does this make sense at all.

Please go dig up this matter so that the public can be well informed of the wriong choices being forced upon the Ministry.
