Shah Alam Stadium set to reopen for AFC Cup clash in February

Upgrading work in Shah Alam Stadium may finish just in time for AFC Cup clash between Selangor and Arema Indonesia in February according to FAS

Selangor is expected to be able to use Shah Alam Stadium as their home turf starting on the 25th February 2014.

The first match that the Red Giants will play at their own backyard is against Arema Indonesia for the AFC Cup Group F tie.

For the new season, Selangor will have to play their home games in the evening against T-Team and Pahang at MBPJ Kelana Jaya Stadium before they will be able to use their trademark stadium.

Shah Alam Stadium has been closed down since last month for renovation and will continue to be closed for the next two months or so.

According to Berita Harian, the Secretary-General of Football Association of Selangor (FAS) Rosman Ibrahim revealed, “According to MBSA, the upgrading work will be fully finished on the 28th of February but we have requested for it to be completed one month earlier so that we can have our first AFC Cup match over there.”

Meanwhile, PKNS FC, who have been using the Shah Alam Stadium will have their matches played at the Selayang Stadium.
