# Ticket chaos in Shah Alam

# Ticket chaos in Alor Setar


TICKETS. There are never enough tickets for football fans in Malaysia when their teams are in the final of a major final.

Let it be the Malaysia Cup or the FA Cup Final. It is the perennial problem in Malaysian football because there are never enough tickets for the fans to buy and it is always chaotic scenes at the venues when the tickets are put up on sale.

This year’s Malaysia Cup final at the Shah Alam Stadium this Saturday is no exception with fans of Selangor and Kedah crying foul because they simply have not been able to buy them.

In Alor Setar, there were chaotic scenes when tickets were put on sale and it was no different at the Shah Alam Stadium – which drew angry remarks from those who had come all over the state to purchase their tickets.

What irked the fans is that thousands of ticket were sold out within an hour – leaving the perplexed with the “quick time sales” that has become a normal thing each time.

“It is surprising that some 30,000 tickets were sold within an hour when we have queued up for nearly three hours,” said an irate fan who gave his name as Karim.

“I took leave and came all the way from Kuala Selangor and I am disappointed that I was not able to buy the ticket. Something is certainly not right.

“It is not the first time that such thing has happened. Why can’t the FAM do something about this? Don’t leave the fans frustrated,” he added.

Meanwhile, thousands of Kedah fans are already making their way to the federal capital to lend their support. Many consider it as an “epic final” after seven long years.

The last time the two teams clashed in the Malaysia Cup final was way back in 2008 with Kedah winning 3-2 to complete a grand treble – winning the League Cup and the FA Cup the same year.
