KOTA BARU: Twenty Chinese drums would be brought to Shah Alam Stadium by Kelantan's football fan club and pounded to a thunderous roar to ignite supporters' enthusiasm and cheer the Red Warriors in their match against Pahang for the Malaysia Cup on Sunday.
Drum group leader Harun Ali said they would head to Shah Alam Sunday night with the drums in their cars and vans following a convoy of 15 buses.
"We will sing the 'Yuh Ayuh' and 'Gomo Kelate Gomo' wholeheartedly with drum accompaniment. I hope the Malaysia Cup will go back to Kelantan again this year," he said when met here Friday.
Meanwhile, in Shah Alam, the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has given an assurance that security would be strengthened at the final match between Kelantan and Pahang.
Its vice president Datuk Afandi Hamzah said it was decided during a meeting with Selangor police that 2,155 personnel would be based in the vicinity, the highest number ever deployed in any final game.
"At the same time, the police will use a helicopter to oversee that the match goes on smoothly," he told reporters after chairing a meeting with the team managers.
He said Kelantan team supporters would enter the stadium through the left entrance while Pahang team supporters through the right.
Meanwhile, FAM secretary general Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin advised supporters not to light up flares, an offence under the international football rules.
"We can be penalised by the Asian Football Confederation and if the practice continues, we will probably have to play without the supporters in future," he cautioned. - Bernama
