He claims to have received information that tickets were selectively issued to certain parties to avoid a booing incident that previously occurred to Kedah Menteri Besar Ahmad Bashah.
Don’t teach us how to administer, Kedah football tells critics
The Kedah Football Association (KFA) has struck back against critics over the ticket sales issue for the Malaysia Cup Finals tomorrow, saying they need not be taught how to administer, as they are an “old organisation.”
Its honorary secretary Aminuddin Omar was quoted by Sinar Harian saying that the association, has, in fact, brought the Kedah football team to new heights that Kedahans can be proud of.
“There is no other team that can match ours, and I urge parties to not derail our team’s focus and try to ruin the team.
“We are in the best ‘track’ possible. All Kedah supporters are rooting for the ‘Lang Merah’ (the state football team), and I think football fans from other states are also rooting for our team,” he was quoted.
Kedah meets Johor in the Malaysia Cup finals at the Shah Alam stadium this Saturday, and the match has been plagued by ticketing issues, where hundreds of Kedah football fans have protested against not getting tickets for the match.
There have been allegations that the tickets have been bought out by Kedah Umno members, to ensure that state Menteri Besar Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah is not booed.
Yesterday, Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, who is also the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president, also slammed KFA and the Kedah state administration over the issue.
“This is what happens when you have a menteri besar who is not firm and who have subordinates who do nonsensical things to create tension between the two parties for their own political gain,” Tunku Ismail had said in a statement posted on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page, adding that he had asked Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) to look into the possibility of printing extra tickets for Kedah fans who were “wronged by certain parties”.
KFA had denied hoarding tickets for the match and said the sales were done in a transparent manner.

POLICE will mobilise more than 1,500 officers at Shah Alam Stadium for the Malaysia Cup final between Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) and Kedah on Saturday.
Shah Alam district police chief, ACP Shafien Mamat said the number deployed included members of the Federal Reserve Unit, K-9 unit as well as horse patrol unit.
“I am confident the supporters of both teams are professional and mature and hope no quarters will try to provoke each other.
“As a small group of fans had tried to disrupt public order after the match in the past, police are tightening control before, during and after the match to ensure the stadium and its surrounding areas are free from any disturbance,” he said in Shah Alam today.
Shafien said the stadium gates would be opened at 4pm and supporters were encouraged to come early.
The final starts 9pm.
He said JDT supporters would enter the stadium via gates A and D, while Kedah fans would use gate B and C.
All spectators would undergo checks as a precautionary measure.
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 ― Johor crown prince Tunku Ismail Ibrahim has warned Kedah Umno to stop “politicising” the upcoming Malaysia Cup final match between Kedah and Johor.
In a statement posted on the Johor FC Facebook page, Tunku Ismail accused Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah and the Youth, Sports and Culture state executive councillor Datuk Aminuddin Omar of causing tension among fans for their political gain.
On Wednesday, former Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir alleged that Kedah Umno purchased the match tickets in bulk to ensure that fans did not boo Ahmad Bashah tomorrow.
Tunku Ismail responded by requesting Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) to print an extra 1,000 tickets for genuine Kedah fans instead of Umno supporters to attend the match.
He also called Ahmad Bashah out for allowing his subordinates to meddle and create tension between the Johor and Kedah fans.
“Political agenda should not be mixed with politics. Kedah and Johor fans should not fight with one another. This is what the politicians want as this is the political party’s strategy used from before in order to divide and conquer.
“We have to be united to rid elements of politics in football,” he said.
The Johor crown prince also claimed that Aminuddin blackmailed FMLLP over the invitation of former Kedah captain Radhi Mat Din.
“Lately, FMLLP suggested to invite Radhi Mat Din, a football legend, and ex-skipper for Kedah who have previously won the Malaysia Cup to feature in the opening ceremony of the Malaysia Cup Finals this Saturday.
“Surprisingly, FMLLP was blackmailed by Kedah exco, Datuk Aminuddin stating that he will boycott the match should Radhi be invited on the basis that Radhi is a PAS Party member,” said
Tunku Ismail, adding that Radhi has every right to be there and that his political allegiance had nothing to do with the sport.
Tunku Ismail also accused Ahmad Bashah and Aminuddin of demanding that the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) cover its own cost if it holds an exco meeting in Kedah.
“It is as if they’re are deliberately hindering FAM from going to Kedah and hindering me from meeting the Kedah supporters whom I have utmost respect for,” said the crown prince, voicing his suspicion.
Kedah football fans have filed 5 police reports, after failing to buy tickets for the Malaysia Cup final against JDT
Kedah football fans have filed 5 police reports, after failing to buy tickets for the Malaysia Cup final against JDT.
The cops say the fans are unsatisfied with the sale of the tickets, which were all snapped up in less than an hour.
They’ve also expressed grievances over alleged inaccurate information provided by the Kedah FA about the number of tickets on sale.
Earlier, the FA clarified only some 10,000 tickets were put on sale, with another 20,000 allocated to groups, including 400 buses of Lang Merah supporters.

TMJ to step in after Malaysia Cup ticket sale dispute
PETALING JAYA: Johor crown prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim today said he would look into the ticket situation for the Malaysia Cup final following claims that Kedah Umno’s youth wing had distributed tickets to its members to ensure that Menteri Besar Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah would not be booed.
In a statement on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page this evening, Tunku Ismail, better known as TMJ, said he would contact the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) about the matter.
“I will be contacting Hamidin Amin, general-secretary of FAM, and Kevin Ramalingam, CEO of FMLLP, to enquire if there are any extra tickets for the Malaysia Cup final to be given to Kedah fans who were not able to obtain tickets,” he said.
“I have contacted FMLLP to look into the possibility of printing an additional 1,000 tickets for the Kedah supporters who have been wronged by certain parties.”
Tunku Ismail, who is president of FAM, added that the relationship between Kedah and Johor fans appeared more tense now than it had been before.
“This is what happens when you have a chief minister who is not firm and who has subordinates who ‘kerja yg bukan bukan’ to create tension between the two parties for their own political gain.
“Kedah and Johor fans should not fight with one another. This is what the politicians want, as this is the political party’s strategy used from before in order to divide and conquer.
“We have to be united to rid elements of politics in football.
“When we fight and are divided, they have everything to gain. My advice to all of you is not to bite their bait,” he said.
Yesterday, PPBM vice-president Mukhriz Mahathir said the tickets for the final match between Kedah and Johor had sold out within an hour as the Kedah Umno youth wing wanted to ensure that only “their people” would turn up.
