Haadi Awang, one of the organisers, emphasised that the previous management are not and will not be involved with this event or any future event as they are no longer associated with the company.
“Let me firstly start off by sharing that, Weekend Warriors is under a holding company of Respin Labs Sdn Bhd which is a 100 per cent company owned by HAHD Group Of Companies (HGOC).
“With this change, we would like to share our new vision, which is to create an environment and community for all ages that encourages participation and interaction through sports. We will not only focus on football but other sports such as netball, basketball, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), dart and many more. With this, we hope to also venture into E-sport.
“Subsequently, throughout the games and various sports, we can have skilled and sought out players to compete and contend internationally under the flagship of Weekend Warriors.
“I would like to express my gratitude to my colleague for making the event happen and also the captains for participating in this tournament. I also like to thank Zell Transportation Sdn Bhd, Mont Water, Rasa Ceria Cafe, Salina’s Mart and Suntec Concrete Sdn Bhd for sponsoring this event.”
