All organised championships with spectators are subject to permission by the Youth and Sports Ministry.
Adding that there would be commencing two Malaysia League matches on April 1. The two matches would act as a trial to assess the effectiveness of the Spectator Management Protocols.
Among the SOPs in place are that tickets can only be purchase online; physical distancing of between 1.5m and 2m for spectators; sales only at shops currently within the stadium or venue; and entry and exit movements must be scheduled and organised.
