Malaysian crowd trouble

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) would beef up security for matches played by teams that have a track record of crowd trouble.

FAM secretary general Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad said additional security would be deployed for matches involving clubs or state teams known for the violent conduct of their fans.

"We have informed the police of the problems faced by teams and they have agreed to increase the number of their officers during matches, according to the needs of the respective match," he said when contacted by Bernama.

He said police would assess the security level inside and outside the stadium to ensure law and order.

Azzuddin added that the presence of very few enforcement personnel at stadiums would not be able to prevent incidents that involve fans who throw objects or when a scuffle broke out among fans.

Meanwhile, Azzuddin also said that the amended fixtures for the Super League that starts on Jan 3, would be ready in three days as changes were required after Brunei was dropped from the competition when the Brunei Amateur Football Association was deregistered by the Brunei Registrar of Societies.
