  • Malaysia vs Tajikistan Merdeka Tournament football finals tonight – LRT Bukit Jalil operations extended

    Malaysia vs Tajikistan Merdeka Tournament football finals tonight – LRT Bukit Jalil operations extended

    Malaysia will take on Tajikistan in the Pesta Bola Merdeka (Merdeka Tournament) final tonight (October 17) at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, and it is anticipated that a large crowd will show up for the friendly. As usual with big football matches, Rapid KL will cater to fans with extended LRT operation hours.

    The rail operator says that LRT Ampang/Sri Petaling Line operations from the Bukit Jalil LRT station will be extended tonight till 12.30 am. The match kicks off at 9pm. Aside from the extended hours, Rapid KL will deploy more trains to ferry departing fans after the match.

    The Merdeka Tournament is back after a hiatus – the last time we hosted the friendly tournament was in 2013. The first match last week saw Harimau Malaya beat India 4-2, but all the focus was on the quality of the Bukit Jalil National Stadium pitch, or the lack thereof.

    This will be Tajikistan’s first and only Merdeka Tournament 2023 match; the Central Asia country was supposed to open with a match with Palestine, but the latter pulled out due to the current situation in the Middle East.

  • Malaysia vs Bangladesh football match at Bukit Jalil tonight – LRT operations extended, with extra trains

    Malaysia vs Bangladesh football match at Bukit Jalil tonight – LRT operations extended, with extra trains

    Malaysia will take on Bangladesh in an AFC Asian Cup qualifying match today at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, and it is anticipated that a large crowd will show up for the game. As usual with big football matches, Rapid KL will cater to fans with extended LRT operation hours.

    The rail operator says LRT Ampang/Sri Petaling Line operations from the Bukit Jalil LRT station will be extended tonight. The last train heading to Sentul Timur will leave Bukit Jalil at 12.03 am, while the last train in the direction of Putra Heights will depart Bukit Jalil at 12.44 am.

    Aside from the extended hours, Rapid KL will deploy more trains to ferry departing fans after the match. From the LRT Ampang/Sri Petaling Line, one can switch to LRT Kelana Jaya Line at Masjid Jamek, and to the MRT Kajang Line at Plaza Rakyat.

    As for the game itself, Malaysia’s fate is not entirely in our hands, as we still need to depend on results from the other Group E match between Bahrain and Turkmenistan, as well as results from other groups. Harimau Malaya is currently fifth in the ranking of second-placed teams across six groups. Group winners and the five best runners-up will qualify for next year’s Asian Cup. We’ll need to do our best and keep our fingers crossed. Come on, boys!
