PUTRAJAYA: The Youth and Sports Ministry and the Malaysian Football League (MFL) are continuing their efforts to bring the 2023 Super League to the public by working together for big screen showing of four matches this month.
The four matches include the clash between Kedah and Terengganu, which was shown at Dataran Batu Buruk, Kuala Terengganu, last night followed by the Kelantan versus Penang match on March 5 at the Batu Uban Youth and Sports Complex.
The other two matches are the Kuala Lumpur against Negri Sembilan derby on March 11 which can be seen on a big screen at Kompleks Belia dan Sukan Paroi, Seremban, while the match between Kelantan United and Kedah on March 13 will be shown at Dataran Starwalk, Majlis Bandaraya Alor Setar.
Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh said: “These four big screen screenings are being continued as the programme was well received by the local community during the 2022 AFF Cup and the recent Hockey World Cup matches.
“Based on the data we collected for the big screening programme, for the two screenings of the AFF Cup, 150,000 people came out to watch.
“Because of the popularity of the big screen, we will continue to spend on the programme,” said Hannah, who hinted that the programme will continue for future matches after evaluating the reception given by the fans for the first four screenings. — Bernama
