Poor turnout...because of TV?

The FA Cup final match between Negeri Sembilan and Kedah scheduled for Saturday at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium will probably be cheered by approximately 25,000 supporters.

Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) secretary-general Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad did not dismiss the possibility that the live telecast of the game on TV1 had influenced ticket sales.

He said Negeri Sembilan had so far sold 20,000 tickets for the match, while Kedah only managed to sell 5,000 tickets. "So, about 40,000 tickets will still be available at the stadium from 9am tomorrow," he told reporters Friday.

Tickets are priced at RM20 for adults and RM5 for children and the stadium doors will be opened at 5pm.
