Program 1: U Mobile University Awards 2021
This unique program was conceived especially for UMMLCC S3 for the varsities to support their students who had participated in the tournament. All varsities nationwide can take part in this programme by simply getting their students and administrators to support the event by sharing postings and cheering their team during the livestream.
The event has been a runaway success with more than 20 participating universities from different states having joined and actively organising with their internal team to meet the criteria and supporting the UMMLCC S3 event.
Currently, the top three universities leading the awards are Kolej Universiti Islam Selangor, Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka and Politeknik Balik Pulau, from the Central Zone, Southern Zone and Northern Zone respectively. Students and administrators from these universities really put their all into supporting their teams.
To illustrate, the participating University just need to meet these three simple criteria in order to take part:
- Share & post UMMLCC S3 postings on the university’s official Facebook or Instagram accounts
- Get the highest number of registrations from the GoPayz application downloaded by campus students by using university’s unique campaign code specifically for their campus
- Get as many students to support their campus team players by watching the livestream of the State Tournament and remember to hashtag #campusname in U Mobile MLCC Facebook. The more hashtags a campus have, the higher the chances to win!

Program 2: MLCC eSports Masterclass Workshop
eSports is set to become a lucrative industry as many players are turning professional or taking up roles as casters, streamers, production, or hosts. U Mobile took the lead in recognizing the educational aspect of the sports vital to nurture talents and grow the industry positively in Malaysia.
The creation of the “Free to Join” MLCC eSports Masterclass Workshop by the telco serves as an introduction platform for enthusiasts to further elevate their interest into the potential opportunities of eSports and live streaming.
The ‘Cast Like A Pro’ workshop was coached by Celebrity caster Ikuto in July and August while the ‘Stream & Earn’ workshop by Syameer Deon was conducted in July, and the August session was conducted by Sultan Riq.
