About the Client

As Malaysia’s leading sportswear retailer, Al-Ikhsan Sports has managed to grow from just one outlet to more than 180 across the country, with RM500 million in sales revenue per annum. Having already made its name in Malaysia, Al-Ikhsan Sports wanted to enhance its reputation in the regional arena.


And for that, it turned to The IBR Asia Group to come up with a strategic campaign to showcase how Al-Ikhsan Sports is a leader in the Southeast Asian sportswear and sporting goods retail sector.
