Westports Malaysia Dragons

300x300-wmd

The Westports Malaysia Dragons or KL Dragons were formed by the joint effort of Malaysia’s very own Mr. Ruben Emir Gnanalingam, Dato’ Wira Dani Daim and Dato’ Sri Robin Tan Yeong Ching, young successful entrepreneurs who all have passion for sports.

The team owners agreed on the name “KL Dragons” as the Dragon represents a fierce yet benevolent character which also symbolizes strength, power and authority.

The vision of the KL Dragons is to create a regional platform of high performance sports and setting this Kuala Lumpur based squad as a self-sustaining professional basketball team. In order to achieve such a feat, the Dragons will be investing into facilities, infrastructure and player development to build and create an entertainment entity around basketball.

Dato’ Wira Dani Daim, President of the KL Dragons envisions a future for youths picking up basketball as a profession. He shares, “We will be creating another avenue for kids to participate in a healthy lifestyle and sports by giving them a target and show should they strive to rise to the top, they can eventually play the game they love as professional players,”

The KL Dragons’ home ground is known as the “Dragons’ Den” and currently holds a capacity of 2,500 seats and is located at the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

The Dragons’ title sponsor, Westports Malaysia, returns as the team’s title sponsor for the third year in a row. The team has qualified for the ABL playoffs in every season of the ABL and was the finalist in the league’s fifth season.
