Kedah will go up against Perak FA on 27 July at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium in what is expected to be a pulsating game of attacking football from both sides.

Singapore duo Aidil and Shakir are expecting a tough game but the former is hoping the fanatical support in the terraces, and also the Singapore fans back home can help make the difference.

“It is a huge honour for Shakir and myself to have made it to the FA Cup final, especially since we are rookies in our first year at Kedah. We have three buses of fans coming from Singapore to support us and we hope more will follow our journey after this game,” Aidil said.

“It is good to know that the FA Cup final will be shown live in Singapore because our families, friends and the Singapore fans will get to watch what I hope will be a very good game of football.”
