KUALA LUMPUR, 13 Oct – With the spike in the Covid-19 cases in Malaysia and the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) imposed in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Sabah, the Malaysia Cup competition has been postponed to November.
 The Malaysian Football League (MFL) has announced that “health takes priority” for all concerned and the oldest football competition in this region – the Malaysia Cup first round has now been rescheduled to Nov 6, 7, and 8. The draw is scheduled to be held on Nov 1.
The quarter-final matches will be held on Nov 12-13 with the semi-finals slated for Nov 17. The final is scheduled for Nov 22. The changes were announced by the MFL supremo Datuk Abdul Ghani Hassan.
Defending champions, Johor Darul Takzim (JDT), last year’s runners-up Kedah, Terengganu FC, Perak, Selangor, Pahang, Petaling Jaya City FC, Melaka United, UiTM FC, Sabah and Felda United are the team from the Super League.
From the Premier League are newly crowned champions Penang, runners-up Kuala Lumpur, Kelantan FC, Kuching City FA, and Kelantan United.
Just like the Super League and Premier League which were decided on one round league, the Malaysia Cup will also see a new format because of the pandemic.
Compared to the past there will be no group stages in this year’s Malaysia Cup. Instead, it will be on a knockout basis.
