Singapore-Selangor rivalry renews with The Sultan of Selangor’s Cup 2019
SINGAPORE, 19 JULY 2019 – An annual affair in the Singapore football calendar, The Sultan of Selangor’s Cup will return for an 18th edition on 24 August 2019.
Singapore will compete against our Selangor counterparts in the Singapore-Selangor Under-15 Challenge Cup, Singapore-Selangor Veterans match and the showpiece Singapore-Selangor Selection clash at the Shah Alam Stadium in Selangor, Malaysia.
The highly-anticipated fixture was mooted by HRH Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah in 2001 to revive the friendly rivalry between Singapore and Selangor from the times when both sides would meet in the Malaysia Cup.
Fans interested in catching this exciting match-up may sign up at www.fas.org.sg/tickets from now till 8 August 2019. Two-way transportation and tickets to the matches are complimentary for all Singapore fans.
As a gesture of appreciation to the fans for their support, the FAS will be giving away free commemorative The Sultan of Selangor’s Cup T-shirts to the first 200 fans who sign up. There will also be an exclusive meet-and-greet session with players from the Singapore Selection team for 30 lucky fans who sign up by 1 August 2019.
Football Association of Singapore Vice President and Co-Chairman of The Sultan of Selangor’s Cup, Mr Teo Hock Seng, said: “The Sultan of Selangor’s Cup has become a staple fixture in the local football calendar that is always eagerly anticipated by fans from both sides of the Causeway. It is also one of the rare occasions where the fans can watch the past, present and future talent of Singapore football on display all within the same day. Each year the fans create an atmosphere that needs to be experienced rather than described, which is why I urge fans to join us in supporting the teams at Shah Alam Stadium as one Singapore family.”
