Kelantan Football Association (Kafa) president Bibi Ramjani Ilias Khan said the tournament involving Southeast Asia’s major club teams, Persija Jakarta and Ratchaburi FC would be a good warm up for them.

“I would like to thank the tournament organisers for selecting Kelantan for the inaugural tournament because there are other better teams around. It is an honour to represent the country,” she added.

Kelantan will represent Malaysia, Persija will represent Indonesia while Ratchaburi will represent Thailand in the tournament at National Stadium, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, from January 13 to 20, 2018. — Bernama
