ALOR SETAR, July 22 (Bernama) -- Football fans will have the opportunity to watch this Saturday's FA Cup final between Kedah and Perak on a big screen at Dataran Sungai Korok in Jitra here, courtesy of the state Department of Culture and Arts.
Department director Mohd Rizal Ismail said the live screening of the match that will be played at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, will bring further merriment to the three-day 'Oghang' Kedah festival which will end on Saturday.
He said although many supporters would not be able to go all the way to Bukit Jalil to attend the FA Cup 2019, they could still show their support for the Red Eagles by turning up at Dataran Sungai Korok.
Kedah made it to the finals after defeating Felda United in a penalty shoot-out on June 30 at Stadium Tun Abdul Razak in Jengka, Pahang, while Perak scored a 4-3 aggregate against Pahang after their showdown in the other semi-final match, held in Ipoh.
Kedah is a four-time FA Cup champion, winning the trophy most recently in 2017, while Perak is a two-time winner.
