Selangor Cup

Tomorrow night sees the Selangor Cup played out between Selangor, obviously, and Persib Bandung at the Shah Alam Stadium in, um, Selangor. Obviously.

Officials are anticipating a crowd of 40,000 to fill the cavernous arena between two of South East Asia's biggest sides. Tickets are still available and cost 10 Ringitt

For Selangor fans they will welcome back
Bambang Pamungkas , wearing his usual number 20 shirt, who had a memorable spell with the Red Giants a few years back, leading them to a domestic treble and netting something like 40 goals in one season. Also putting in a guest appearance will be Elie Aiboy, another Indonesian international who recently signed for Pro Duta in the IPL.

If the game is all square after 90 minutes, extra time will be played and if still no winner then it will go to penalties.

Busy day for the visiting Persib players today. They have an official reception with the Indonesian ambassador this afternoon followed by a training session in the early evening at the Shah Alam Stadium. Then everyone gets together for a Selangor/Persib nosebag along with various dignitaries.
