KANGAR: Perlis players and officials will be rewarded for winning the Sultan’s Gold Cup by beating Kedah 2-0 in the final on Monday.
Football Association of Perlis president Datuk Redzuan Sheikh Ahmad said they would receive the RM30,000 prize money and RM20,000 more contributed by a construction company.
The prize money will be shared among the players and officials and the association will not deduct from it for its coffer.
“They deserve the money after taking Perlis to great heights,” he said at a ceremony to honour the team here yesterday.
Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu said despite being a small state, the players showed that they were undaunted by the challenge posed by bigger states.
He thanked a Kedah-based construction company which pledged to reward the team and Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) for providing a coach and players for the team. — Bernama
