KOTA BAHARU – The Super League match between Kelantan and Lions XII at Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium today has been postponed to Sunday (Feb 15).
Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) president Tan Sri Annuar Musa said the postponement is to pay last respects to Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.
“I have informed the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) who agreed with KAFA’s application to postpone the Kelantan-Lions XII match to Sunday.
“KAFA will send an official letter to the FAM and Singapore (Lions XII),” he said his Facebook site yesterday.
Annuar said KAFA also agreed to bear all costs incurred following the postponement of the scheduled match.
“The postponement will cause difficulty to the visiting team, match officials, television station crews, media people and affect the youth team matches.
“I apologise for all the trouble casued,” he added.
Nik Aziz, 84, died at home in Pulau Melaka, here at 9.40pm Thursday after a long fight with prostate cancer.
Remains of the former Kelantan menteri besar were buried at Pulau Melaka Muslim cemetery yesterday. – Bernama
