Be forewarn: Expect even lesser today.
Today is match day. The day Manchester United ‘really’ kicked off their pre-season Asia tour. And you know what? OHMYGOD! I was stucked in the jam for like 3 hours plus. Arrived at the Bukit Jalil Stadium nearly 6pm! 1/2 hour late. I blamed the police. There were plenty of empty parking spaces and yet they shooed many of us away. Grrrr…
So I ended up like yesterday. Standing at the gate entrance. Sad eh. RM98 ticket and you get to stand at the entrance only. Wuahahaha If only I knew, I will get the RM58 ticket. DUH!!!!
Here are some of the photos I took.
NOTE: Shadows on the photos might be caused by people’s head & shoulders and also vignetting. I’m no pro. Kekeke
First I need to warn you. Expect little okay?
I am quite angry with ProEvents. Why didn’t they share Manchester United’s Malaysia Tour ‘full’ schedule? I didn’t know the Reds team are meeting the fans at KLCC!!! Hmmphh
Anyway, let’s talk about Manchester United training session at Bukit Jalil National Stadium. The session didn’t start on the dot (scheduled @ 5.30pm). I reached the car park at 5.30pm and when I hear loud cheering coming from the stadium, I thought I’ve missed it. But PHEW! The lads are not on the pitch yet when I went inside the stadium.
Problem though! Spectators are standing and blocking the way at the entrance. I end up visiting several gates entrance for the best spot. Not sitting at all. Standing all the way.
Here’s a look at where I’m standing.
Congratulations to Manchester United, Barclays Premier League Champions for the 2008/2009 season.
We’ve done it 3 times in a row now!!! (2006/2007 champions, 2007/2008 champions)
Manchester United 1 (6) – Chelsea 1 (5)
Yup I was there again at Stadium Malawati – yesterday, this time for the Clash of Times match between Roger Federer and Pete Sampras. I came in late and the match has just started.
The stadium is packed. I would say about 95% occupied.
