PETALING JAYA: The police will be put on red alert for “high risk” football matches in the M-League.
The FA of Malaysia (FAM) security committee chairman Datuk Seri Salleh Mat Rasid said at a press conference at the Wisma FAM in Kelana Jaya on Wednesday that of late the “football fans’ behaviour has changed”.
“We need to be on alert with the current fans’ behaviour which is causing security concerns at competition venues,” said Datuk Salleh, who is also Bukit Aman Internal Security and Public Order director,
He said at present the FAM and the police have their respective “Standard Operating Procedure” (SOP) with regards to security matters involving football matches.
“We will monitor and identify the ‘high risk’ matches from time to time and will be on alert to prevent any untoward incidents,” said Datuk Salleh, who however, did not wish to name the teams who were deemed to be of “high risk”.
He said the task to maintain security was made difficult due to a lack of proper football stadiums which provide adequate security features such as closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.
