Controversial[edit]

Lack of ticket issue[edit]

On 25 June 2013, Kelantan FA fans turned unruly after the 2013 FA Cup Final tickets were sold out in 10 minutes. There were chaotic scenes when the tickets were put up on sale at the Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium. Kelantan FA fans, who had started queuing up for the tickets from as early as 6 a.m., became agitated when the tickets were sold out barely 10 minutes after going on sale at 9am. Although Kelantan Football Association was allocated 30,000 of the 87,000 tickets available for the finals against Johor Darul Takzim, fans claimed that only 16 tickets were bought by four spectators before the sold-out announcement was made. This caused the agitated fans to break down the stadium gate before forcing the seller to hand over the bag containing the tickets.

However, there were only tickets for the previous night's Malaysia Super League match between Kelantan FA and Pahang in the bag. The angry fans then proceeded to tear up the tickets before venting their anger by hurling abuse at absent Kelantan FA officials. Kelantan FA's secretary and team manager, Haji Azman Ibrahim, said that most of the 30,000 tickets had been pre-booked in bulk, and there were limited tickets on sale at the stadium. He also assured the fans that the pre-booked tickets were for Kelantan FA supporters. He has requested the Football Association of Malaysia for more tickets, and said that he expected a response on 26 June. The problem of insufficient tickets is not new, as many fans always want to see Kelantan FA play whenever it is in a final.[41]
