Selangor FC get financial power to fight for trophies

KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor FC will not lack financial muscles in their chase for glory in the M-League next season.

On Friday, Selangor Chief Minister Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari announced a RM10 million grant for Selangor FC next season and RM8 million for the Selangor State Sports Council.

The war chest is to help the Red Giants fight for the Super League and Malaysia Cup titles next season.

Selangor FC chief executive officer Dr Johan Kamal Hamidon said: "We're very grateful for the RM10 million sponsorship. It's an annual sponsorship which is an important injection of funds that we use in our development programmes.

"We are directly involved in the women's team, Selangor Under-18, Under-20 and Under-23. We also support sports schools and grassroots programmes."

Selangor used to be the biggest team in Malaysian football before the rise of Johor Darul Ta'zim and had won the Malaysia Cup a record 33 times.

The last time the Red Giants lifted a trophy was in 2015 when they beat Kedah 2-0 in the Malaysia Cup final. And the last time Selangor won the Super League title was in 2010.
