Johor Darul Ta’zim FC (JDT) would like to clarify an incident at the Sultan Ibrahim Stadium where marshals were alleged to have stood in front of the visiting fans’ banner, purported to block the banner from view.
While it is true marshals stood around the Sabah fans, it was only to form a human barricade as these fans were not in the dedicated away fans area. Sabah FC did not request for an allocation for away fans, leaving away fans to only be able to purchase home tickets and sit with home fans.
It was the club’s good intentions to nevertheless allow these fans into the stadium and provide them adequate security. The club have also cautioned the stadium marshals for not taking precautions sooner and for watching the match instead of the crowd.
