The Deputy Menteri Besar of the Malaysian State of Kelantan, Datuk Ahmad Yakob, has 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 announcement comes on the heels of yesterday's request (2009-11-03), by the President of Malaysia's Kelantan Football Association (KAFA), that Malaysia's Kelantan State government declare a public holiday on Sunday, November 8, 2009, so that supporters do not have to rush home after Saturday's, Malaysia Cup, match.

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 (2005-06-21).
