FAM confident fans will turn out
The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) are confident loyal fans will show up to support the national squad during the upcoming AIRMARINE Cup 2019.
The first ever installment of the competition is set to feature four nations, Malaysia as hosts, Oman, Afghanistan and Singapore, with tickets to be sold at RM45 (Grandstand) and RM35 (Open).
FAM Vice President Datuk Wira Mohd Yusoff Mahadi said that the tickets are valid for two matches and not just one, contrary to what’s being reported by a number of sources.
“That price is for two matches – with both games being played on the same day (evening and night). And it’s being organised by a private firm and not under FAM.
“I believe both parties have reached an agreement in regards to the ticket prices. It’s hard to comment on the pricing because some people are saying it’s still cheap and some are saying it’s expensive.
“To me, the price could be attributed to the fact that the teams competing in the tournament are ranked higher than us. But I feel that the supporters are still going to show up and they can afford the ticket prices,” he said.
