Manchester United to Play a Second Match in Malaysia

MALAYSIA - Manchester United will play a second match in Malaysia. This was announced at the post-match press conference of the Manchester United match against the Malaysian Selection. 

The announcement was made by Mr Julian Kam, CEO of ProEvents. Also present were David Gill, CEO, Manchester United, and Dato' Azzuddin Ahmad, General Secretary, Football Association of Malaysia (FAM). 

Julian Kam said, "We would like to announce that MU will play a second match in Malaysia. And this will be on Monday the 20th at 8.45pm at this stadium. Looking at the tremendous reception the team has received in Malaysia, and the capacity crowd tonight, we believe that many fans would be eager to watch the team play again. A second match will give fans who missed out to watch the players in action. And those who'd like to watch them again can also do so. Also, a second match will give our Malaysian players another chance to play MU, something that coach Rajagobal says will be very good experience for our boys." 

"The tickets to the match will cost RM58 and this is free seating. Grandstand tickets will be at RM308. Tickets can be purchased through all Ticketpro outlets from tomorrow. Tickets can also be purchased from the ticket counter at the Green Gate at the stadium, from tomorrow onwards, from 12pm to 7pm. On Match Day, tickets will be on sale from 12pm onwards. 

"The RM308 grandstand tickets will be sold online through and also at all outlets. The grandstand tickets will not be sold at the stadium," added Julian Kam. 

"We know there are many disappointed fans who have missed the opportunity to catch the match in Jakarta. We have made some special arrangements for them. Visitors from the UK who bought tickets to watch the match in Indonesia can bring their tickets to us and exchange them to get new tickets to watch the match on the 20th. For fans in Indonesia who bought tickets to the match in Jakarta, you can exchange your Indonesian match ticket to get a ticket to watch the match in KL. We have arranged for 3,000 seats in the stadium to be allocated to these fans. We will set up a special Counter at the Green Gate at the Stadium for fans to exchange their ticket. This Counter will be open on Match Day, July 20 from 12pm to 7pm." 

Julian added, "Finally I would like to thank the Malaysian Government, Football Association of Malaysia, the police, the immigration, the security and our hotel, Mandarin Oriental for the tremendous support and assistance they have given to us over the last 24 hours to make the team's extended stay and the second match possible.
