Women supporters queueing up at a specially-reserved lane to buy tickets for Pahang's Super League match against JDT on Feb 6, 2014.
KUANTAN: The Pahang FA (PFA) have introduced a special lane for female supporters who want to purchase tickets at the Darul Makmur Stadium here.
This decision was made by the PFA at their last meeting on Tuesday. It is to allow female fans easy access to match tickets.
On Thursday, all 18,000 tickets for Friday’s Super League match between Pahang and Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) were snapped up in less than five hours after the ticket counters opened at 9am.
It is not even a Cup final but a bumper crowd of 35,000 is expected at the stadium tonight. PFA also sold 6,000 tickets at the Municipal Council Stadium in Temerloh and the balance have been reserved for fans from other districts as well as sponsors.
The last time Pahang met JDT was in the second leg of the FA Cup semi-final on May 28 last year, when the match had to be abandoned after fans invaded the pitch.
The replay, held at the neutral venue of the Shah Alam Stadium, saw JDT advance to the final on the away goal rule after the match ended 2-2 on aggregate.
