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 (2010-10-30) 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 (2009-11-04), 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 (2005-06-21).
