In our story headlined “Ode to Malaysian Football’s Mummy” on Sunday, May 10, it was wrongly reported that the first women’s football match in the country was officiated by Tunku Ampuan Najihah Almarhum Tunku Besar Burhanuddin, the wife of Tuanku Jaafar Almarhum Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

It was actually officiated by Tunku Ampuan Durah Almarhum Tunku Besar Burhanuddin, who was Tunku Ampuan Negri Sembilan in 1961. The photograph also shows Parameswary pinning a brooch on Tunku Ampuan Durah.

Tuanku Jaafar, the son of the first Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Rahman ibni Almarhum Tuanku Muhammad, was the 10th Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

We apologise for the error, especially to the Negri Sembilan royal family.
