FAM: SEA Games football ticket sales are not our responsibility

PETALING JAYA: The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) have clarified that they are not responsible for matters relating to the sale of tickets for SEA Games football and futsal matches.
This includes the sale of tickets for Tuesday's crunch football final match between Malaysia and Thailand at the Shah Alam Stadium.
FAM secretary-general Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin said this came under the purview of the Malaysia Organizing Committee (Masoc) and the Youth & Sports Ministry.
He added that the Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) was also not responsible for the sale of tickets.
"As a representative of FAM, I feel sorry that there are still certain parties who insist on putting the blame on FAM regarding the issue of ticket sales. We are only involved in the technical aspects of the football and futsal matches during the 2017 SEA Games," Hamidin said in a statement on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Ultras Malaya supporters group have said that they will boycott the final as a show of solidarity to those who could not get tickets, which they pinned on a flawed selling mechanism.
Thousands had gathered at the Shah Alam Stadium since Sunday night to queue for the tickets soon after Malaysia had beaten Indonesia in the semi-finals.
Ticket counters only opened at 11am Monday, with each person only entitled to five tickets at RM21.20 each.
Queues for the tickets stretched for kilometres, with many returning empty-handed after queuing up for hours.
Touts look advantage of the situation,with some even selling tickets for the match for up to Rm2000.
