PETALING JAYA – The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has allocated 30,000 ticket each to Kelantan and Lions XII from Singapore for the FA Cup final at the Nasional Stadium in Bukit Jalil on May 23.
FA Cup final organising chairman Datuk Seri Afandi Hamzah said the remaining 20,000 tickets would be sold online through the www.tickethotline.com.my website starting today and fans can redeem their tickets at the National Stadium counter starting 10am on Thursday.
Each fan can purchase only four tickets – RM40 tickets for adults and RM5 for children below 12 – while the price of tickets is inclusive of the 6 percent Goods and Services Tax (GST).
“Kelantan fans can start buying ticket at the Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium in Kota Baharu starting Wednesday and Lions XII fans can purchase their tickets at the Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore from Thursday,” he told reporters after chairing an organising committee meeting at Wisma FAM, Kelana Jaya, here yesterday.
Afandi said unsold tickets allocated for Lions XII would later be sold to Kelantan fans or through the online system.
He added that Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana) had also agreed to extend the Transit Aliran Ringan (LRT) service until 3am to enable fans to use the services after the match.
Kelantan, winners of the FA Cup in 2012 and 2013 made it to the final after beating Pahang 3-2 on aggregate while Lions XII earned their ticket on away goals rule after a 4-4 aggregate draw against Terengganu.
