The Football Association of Malaysia has approved Terengganu's stadium to host matches at night after they successfully upgraded the floodlights
The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has confirmed that Terengganu’s stadium, the Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium (SSINS), is good to go for night matches.
The Secretary-general of Terengganu’s Football Association (PBSNT), Sheikh Tajuddin Sheikh Yusof, said that his side has received an official letter from the FAM to confirm the matter.
According to Bernama, the approval was given after SSINS upgraded their spotlights to 1200 Lux, which was the requirement set by FAM for any stadium to host M-League matches at night.
Terengganu and T-Team will now play games at night, with this Friday's clash between Terengganu and Kelantan set to be the first night match to be played at Kuala Terengganu this season.
Terengganu’s state government has spent RM4 Million in order to install the new spotlights after the FAM initially did not approve night matches due to the lighting not being up to the FAM’s standards.
The SSINS was one of a few stadiums which did not receive approval from the FAM earlier in the season, which included Stadium MBPJ Selangor as well.
