doorstep of the international arena, this support is a great strength for them. On behalf of every
athletics enthusiast in Sri Lanka, I appreciate this huge step taken by MAS Holdings. This will support Sri
Lankan athletes who are going to the international level to make our motherland proud.” he stated.
“We at MAS are changemakers,” said Dilshan Mohamed, Director Marketing and Business Development

their game through performance wear that uses a very light breathable fabric, with moisture wicking
capabilities and a soft feel for augmented comfort” he stated.
“Not only are we excited about providing game day and training kits to our teams, but as the official
clothing partner for SLA, we are excited to work with our national athletes in product co-creation,
