Malaysia Cup: Spectators allowed into stadiums from Oct 29

The Malaysia Football League (MFL) has confirmed that the 2021 Malaysia Cup campaign will begin to admit spectators from October 29.

The MFL, however, will consider allowing spectators in earlier if teams planned to hold friendly matches during the cup competition break from October 2 to 28, subject to the detailed standard operating procedure (SOP) by the Youth and Sports Ministry (KBS).

MFL president Datuk Ab Ghani Hassan said spectators returning to stadiums was not only good news for local football fans, but it would also reignite the country’s football industry.

“Ever since spectators were banned since May 9, 2021 due to the spike in Covid-19 cases in the country, all of us, especially die-hard fans, who missed witnessing the football spectacle first-hand in stadiums, have been waiting for this moment to happen.

“What more as we are currently celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Malaysia Cup,” he said in a MFL statement today.
