Is KL football finally 'safe'?

Kuala Lumpur City FC will play Oman's Al Seeb in the AFC Cup final scheduled tomorow (Oct 22; 7pm) at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.

The team has come a long way since the city boys hogged the backpages of local dailes in the 80s and 90s,

But the city outfit went through troubled times. Eleven years ago, the situation was so bad that a group of fans decided to start a Save KLFA campaign. To me, it was a humiliating moment for the administrators.

Today, it's a different Kuala Lumpur football team. Firstly, it's a club (note the change in name) and secondly, it has marked its presence in the region.

KL City FC has home advantage. While Al Seeb may be labelled as the favourites, deep down I believe Bojan Hodak's lads could win the title. 

All the best to KL City FC and Al Seeb. Here's to a spectacular show.

Is KL football finally safe?

I would like to see what happens after GE15. This is because we've had individuals from different political affiliations calling the shots in their respective positions. And some are eager to give KL City FC CEO Stanley Bernard the boot. If Stanley goes, Hodak will pack up and leave.

So I guess KL football still needs to be 'saved' after all.

Read KLFA president Khalid to stay on despite calls to resign.
