Terengganu stadium to be inspected before AFC Cup

Officers of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) will be in Terengganu to inspect facilities at the Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium (SSINS) next February before the AFC Cup matches kickoff.

Terengganu Football Association (PBSNT) vice-president Sheikh Tajudin Sheikh Yusoff said several areas in the stadium were being upgraded to ensure the  competition would proceed smoothly.

"There are no major problems, except the floodlight brightness  which I believe the Kuala Terengganu City Council (MBKT), as owner of the stadium, will be doing something to protect the image of the state," he told reporters here.

He said the facilities at SSINS, like the changing room and the meeting room, met the AFC requirements.

Meanwhile, Terengganu's chance of playing night matches in next year's Malaysian League appeared dim as the floodlight at SSINS is said to be below the required brightness of 800 lux.

 Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) assistant secretary Ahmad Fuad Daud said the readings at two of the nine spots in the stadium did not meet the 800 lux brightness.

 "However other facilities such as the tunnel, sound system, barrier-free areas meet the stipulated level," he told reporters here Friday.
