Brightness Of Newly Installed Floodlights At SSINS Surpass FAM's Requirement

KUALA TERENGGANU, June 11 (Bernama) -- The Terengganu Football Association (TFA) are confident that the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) will allow the Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium (SSINS) to host night matches since the brightness of the floodlights installed surpassed the 1,600 lux reading.

TFA vice president Sheikh Ahmad Tajuddin Sheikh Yusof said two representatives from the FAM had carried out an inspection at the stadium tonight and recorded the reading.

"The inspection carried out today showed all lights surpassed the minimum 1,200 lux requirement set by the FAM. Readings recorded at nine locations showed readings from between 1,600 to 2,000 lux," he told reporters in the presence of the two FAM representatives at the stadium, Tuesday night.

"We hope the FAM competitions committee will approve the stadium to host the Super League match between Terengganu and Kelantan on June 21."

Meanwhile, one of the FAM representative Mohd Zaini Abu Bakar said a report would be submitted to the Competition chairman Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin, tomorrow.

It was earlier reported that the state government had spent RM4 million to upgrade the floodlights at the stadium after the FAM barred night matches at the stadium to poor lighting.

The stadium has since been hosting matches in the afternoon.
