Offensive banners and loud jeers from Malaysian fans filled Shah Alam Stadium during the Singapore national anthem before the Singapore-Malaysia match last night (June 12).
This incident follows the recent riot between Malaysian and Singaporean fans before the first match between the teams at Horne Road just last Friday (June 8).
The match ended in a 2-0 loss for the Singapore team.
The moment Majulah Singapura started playing, the fans raised two banners -- one reading 'Harimau Malaya for fans not the FAM' and another with the word 'Rasuah' (Malay for corruption). These fans are believed to be from Ultras Malaya, the official supporting group for the national team of Malaysia.
Some of these fans even turned their backs to the field during the national anthem.
The Malaysian fans also set fire to paper fashioned after the Singapore $10 notes with the word 'Bookie' on top. This was accompanied by booing and airhorns.
It is speculated that this hostility is a result of the Malaysian fans' displeasure at the referee's decision to award a free-kick to the Singapore team in the previous match. The free-kick led to the first goal of the match from the Singapore team, which ended in a 2-2 draw.
Said STOMPer Eurofan, who attended the match yesterday:
"This is utter disrespect!
"These idiots come here, wreck havoc in our land, and then insult our national anthem when we go over.
"If our citizens can be well-behaved in both Singapore and Malaysia, why can't they do the same?
"If they are unhappy with referee's decision, they should lodge a complaint or petition, and not resort to this.
"More importantly, this is just a friendly match!
"If people can be arrested for misusing the national flag in the United States of America, why can't we do the same?"
