AFF Cup Malaysia vs Thailand semi-finals at Stadium Bukit Jalil tomorrow night – LRT extended to 12.30 am

After thrashing Singapore earlier this week, Harimau Malaya earned a spot in the semi-finals of the 2022 Asean Football Federation (AFF) Cup. Our opponents will be neighbours Thailand, and the other two teams vying for a place in the finals are Indonesia and Vietnam.

Malaysia vs Thailand is happening tomorrow night (January 7 2023) at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, and the first leg of the semis will start at 8.30 pm. If you’re heading there to support our boys, consider taking the LRT, as the roads around the stadium will be congested, to say the least.

As usual with big football matches, Rapid KL will cater to fans with extended LRT operation hours. The rail operator says LRT operations from the Bukit Jalil LRT station will be extended till 12.30 am. From there, one can switch to other train lines at interchange stations – see the graphic above.

Remember to have enough credit in your Touch n Go card and always wear a mask when using public transport. Come on boys, let’s make our home advantage count and take a lead to Bangkok next week!

    One honest question (not a sarcasm): Why do the non-Bumis not support the Malaysian football team like they support EPL teams?

      One honest answer.
      After the past decades of decadent scandals involving match fixing involving players n officials,I stopped following the local league.
      Also,the standard of the league is way way far far from the EPL.
      So,I dont waste my time.Just watch Astro EPL..It has nothing to do with bumi/non bumi thing.
      When I was a teen,my dad took me to Merdeka Stadium to watch Mokhtar Dahari n Spiderman Arumugum.I enjoyed every minute of it.So,dont always bring out ‘racial issues” like some politicians.

  • Honestly, its the political environment surrounding FAM. There are so many Chinese and Indian struggling to find a spot in the club/country squad, even at school level! Last time we did so well with Mr Soh, Mr Arumugam and Mr James. its just really sad how our society is nowadays. Football is a malay sport, badminton/basketball cina sport, etc… But anyhow, we are so patriotic we do actually support them. We watch them live also

    Systematic polarization done a great de-service to stop Non Malays from involving in the sport. Those days football field was in every corner and nook and no one had special privilege to participate in the game. Todays field become a rare to masses. The privilege group and more appropriate is race based education system and programmes, never gives opportunity to other races especially the education system with it special sports school such as MRSM, Sekolah Asrama Penuh and many special schools that offers the best facilities to only Malay student because almost 99% of student population of these selected schools are of Malay student. Just like what is happening in bureaucracy dominated by one race. Many normal schools doesn’t offer good sports facilities. But look at the special schools dominated by one race. Today dart of Non Malay can be seen very much in the representation. It is a shame we are naturalizing foreigners to represent the nation which is a wrong policy. Today, most of the schools doesn’t has football field. Many emerging footballers and other sports representative of Non Malay is from effort by the families. Only when they achieved certain prominence then the support of the sports fraternity comes in. The fact racism exist cannot be denied.

    The last I checked, Malaysia’s football ranking is at 145 out of 211, behind war-torn countries like Ethiopia, Rwanda, Sudan and Sierra Leone. This is after hundred of millions spent to elevate the squad over the decades.
