KUALA LUMPUR: Football fans could be making a return to stadiums to watch matches again, says Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu.
The Youth and Sports Minister said a plan had been sent to the National Security Council to allow football fans to fill stadium terraces once again.
"We are working on the details and have some proposals. Perhaps, we will soon be able to enjoy the Malaysia Cup live.
