English champions Man City en route to Bukit Jalil
First they brought Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany all the way from London for a surprise appearance at the event held at Wisma FAM this afternoon.
The second "goodie" came from ProEvents International Sdn Bhd's Chief Executive Officer Mr Julian Kam who announced that there will no increase in the price of tickets for the match.
Tickets for the match are priced at RM58, RM68, RM108 and limited VIP tickets at RM388 and will be available from Thursday, June 7th at all TicketPro outlets, TicketPro hotline and www.ticketpro.com.my.
"Despite the escalating costs around the world, there will be no increase in the price of tickets for the match. The price of tickets has remained the same for the last decade.
"We want to make it affordable for all the football fans. This is our way of giving them a treat to first class football from a world class team," said Julian at the launch. "With the star-studded line up, we hope all the football fans will come and catch the newly crowned Premier League Champions live in action."
The match will be organised by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and promoted exclusively by ProEvents who are celebrating their 20th anniversary in the football business.
"Malaysia is the only South East Asian country given the opportunity to host the English giants and it is therefore expected that many football fans from neighbouring countries including Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam will be visiting Malaysia during that week," said Dato' Azzuddin Ahmad, General Secretary of FAM.
