To amplify sports conversations among fans in Malaysia, Astro is partnering with Twitter to provide ‘near-live’ football match clips and tournament content on @stadiumastro.

Malaysians are passionate about football, and fans should head straight to Astro and Twitter to see and talk about everything that’s happening during the football tournament. Fans of the global football tournament can look forward to goal alerts from match of the day, replay of the best goal of the day from every angle, roundup of the day’s action capturing key moments and a collection of video clips of the star player of a match.
