Unlike previous matches where tickets were sold online, Malaysian supporters can only purchase tickets to the final match at the Shah Alam Stadium from 11am today

Kuala Lumpur 2017 made the announcement yesterday that Malaysian supporters will be able to purchase the tickets to the final from 11am until they are sold out. Tickets will not be sold online.

A total of 20 ticket counters will be opened at Gate A and Gate B of Shah Alam Stadium. Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin confirmed on Twitter that the tickets will be priced at RM21.20 including GST.
