The State Secretary to Malaysia's State of Kelantan, Datuk Aiseri Alias, has announced that tomorrow, Sunday, June 12, 2011, would be a one-off State public holiday in conjunction with tonight's FA Cup final between Kelantan and Terengganu.
Last year (30-Oct-2010) a one-off public holiday was declared for Sunday, October 31, 2010, to mark the Red Warriors' defeat of Negri Sembilan in the Malaysia Cup final.
Similarly, two years ago (04-Nov-2009), the Deputy Menteri Besar of the Malaysian State of Kelantan, Datuk Ahmad Yakob, had declared Sunday, November 8, 2009, as a non-working state public holiday to mark the Kelantan Football Team's historic Malaysia Cup appearance, the day before.
The reason for the need to declare a Sunday, non-working, public holiday, is that in 3 of Malaysia's States (Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu), the weekly day of rest is Friday, and that, as such, Sundays are regular working days (21-Jun-2005).
