KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah FA’s planned Quadrangular Football Tournament is now a Triangular affair.
Its Executive Secretary Harry Baking said that the championship will be a three-team affair with a team each from Brunei, Indonesia as well as Sabah. DPMM of Brunei and Persiba of Balik Papan will be the two visiting teams after Persibom from the Sulawasi opted out due to time constraint.
Harry also confirmed that the tournament will be held from November 25 to 27 at the Tawau Sports Complex. “Actually it would be great if it is a four-team tournament, but time is limited especially for the teams from Indonesia. “For instance, Persiba will be heading home on Nov 27 as they have a game on Dec 1 back home.
“Nevertheless, we firmly believe that this will still be positive warm-up matches for the Rhinos ahead of the Premier League kick-off on Dec 17. “We are thankful to the two teams for coming and hopefully this will be a good trip for them too.
Sabah will take on Persiba in the opening match on Nov 25 with the kick off set at 7.30pm. The second match will see Persiba taking on DPMM (Nov 26) before Sabah and DPMM conclude the tournament on Nov 27. Tickets are priced at RM10 and RM5 for all these matches.
