FAM risks sactions?

There is a possibility the FA of Malaysia (FAM) could face sanctions for breaches seen at the World Cup qualifying (round 2 return leg) match between Malaysia and Singapore at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil last month.

Prima facie, FAM may have breached Articles 7, 8, 18 and 19 of the Fifa Safety Regulations. This has to be complimented with Article 73 of the Fifa Disciplinary Code.

Why?

1. This is a World Cup qualifying match - grouped as one of the top three major events by Fifa that must adhere to strict regulations.

2. A fan was blinded (pic).

3. Fans stood at the stairs, observers believed there was an over-print of tickets.

4. Stalls set up too close to the gates of the stadium.

Fifa security and venue officer Dell Akbar Khan was both diplomatic and polite but agrees with my findings - as published in today's Mailsport.

I hope FAM will NOT be penalised. But if they do, then it would be a bitter lesson to be learnt. Things need to be done professionally.

HD says: As it was once said, “Professionalism: It’s NOT the job you DO, It’s HOW you DO the job.”

  4. Of course overprint lah bro. if 85k sold as annnounced for sure everybody is seated as the seating capacity is 87k. Of course there are still fans outside the gate who couldnt get in.


    Fans who jeered and noisy during Singapore National Anthem. Do this people know how to respect the visitors despite already watching tons of international friendlies over pay-tv?

    And not even FAM or KBS dare to speak up to tell the fans to behave. No guts? This is not politics venue where popularity votes are needed.
