Fans angry over high ticket prices hack FAM website

Angry fans have defaced the website of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM), with hackers changing its logo and posting vulgar remarks.
FAM general-secretary Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad said the association would lodge a police report.

“This is not the first time. It is something we have experienced before,” said Azzuddin, after the Malaysia Cup final team managers’ meeting at the Shah Alam Stadium yesterday.

It is believed that the website ( was defaced by hackers demanding that the ticket price for today’s Malaysia Cup final between Terengganu and Negri Sembilan be reduced.
FAM had raised the ticket price by introducing a flat rate of RM50 last week. Previously, ticket prices were between RM30 and RM50.

The hackers called the move “illogical” and branded FAM as a capitalist. The defaced page credited UM’07, cr3ws, gaysec and anti-p4sti for the hacking.

More than 54,000 tickets were sold in Kuala Terengganu and Seremban.

Fans can buy 16,000 tickets at the stadium from 9am today.
