KUANTAN: A group of Pahang football fans turned unruly when they found out that the tickets for their team’s FA Cup semi-final second-leg match against Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) on Friday had been sold out.
On Thursday, the fans forced their way to the counters after being told that the 32,000 tickets for the tie, to be held at the Darul Makmur Stadium on Friday, had been sold out barely two hours after the counters opened at 9am.
The security personnel managed to calm down the fans and brought the situation under control before the police escorted the disgruntled supporters out of the stadium at 11am.
Slina Awang, 48, said she brought her two children to queue up at the counter as early as 8.15am and was told that the tickets were sold out hardly an hour later.
“I’m really disappointed that the tickets were sold out ... but, to add insult to injury, even the counter meant for women was taken over by men,” she complained.
Another disappointed fan, Khairul Azmi Bakar, 32, claimed that he queued up for nearly two hours to get a ticket and did not budge until the last counter was closed at 10.30am.
This isn’t the first time that fans have been turned away as tickets sold out fast.
Pahang drew 1-1 with JDT in the first leg of the semi-final at the Larkin Stadium on May 7.
