Terengganu stadium fails lighting inspection again

Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium has failed inspection again and its fate is now in the hands of the FA of Malaysia's (FAM) Local Tournament Committee.

Tournament director Ahmad Fuad Daud, who inspected the stadium on Thursday night, said the committee will decide on Thursday if Super League  matches for Terengganu and T-Team could be held in Kuala Terengganu at night.

"The stadium came short again as two out of nine locations on the pitch registered readings below the minimum 800 lux requirement.

"All other requirements were met but we need all nine spots on the field to have readings above 800 lux and the matter is now in the hands of the committee," he said.

"Since the league starts on Jan 10, the committee will decide on the kick-off time of the scheduled match in Kuala Terengganu," said the FAM assistant general secretary who was in Kota Baru, Kelantan, to inspect Sutan Mohamad (IV) Stadium yesterday.

Ahmad said the  other stadiums  which had failed  inspections will be reviewed again before the end of the month. 

Terengganu FA deputy president Shaikh Ahmad Tajuddin Shaikh Yusof said  the Kuala Terengganu City Council is trying to improve the lighting system at the stadium.

"I am confident that Super league matches will be played at night but it is a different story for the AFC Cup matches as the lux reading for international games cannot be less than 1,200 lux.
