JOHOR BARU: The Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) football club will give part of its RM1mil reward given by the state government for winning the Malaysia Cup to the flood victims in Penang.

Club owner Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim,who is also the Tunku Mahkota Johor, said the matter was agreed upon between him and the players.

"Johor government will also be giving donation to the flood victims there and the club would donate how much we can, which is between RM500,000 and RM600,000, to Penang.

"JDT is more than a football club and we are sincere in helping those in need like when we helped flood victims in Pahang and Kelantan and Sabah earthquake victims," he added.
