KUALA LUMPUR: Super League side PKNS have accepted an invitation to play in the Sultan of Selangor's Cup annual match against a Singapore Selection on May 6 in Singapore.
"This is an honour for the club and the team aspires to win the Sultan of Selangors' Cup trophy as a gift to His Royal Highness Tuanku Sultan and to the people of Selangor," said PKNS FC president Siti Zubaidah Abd Jabar in a statement.
"We will strive to play an entertaining and quality game in keeping with the tradition of the tie, which is symbolic of the special relations and sporting spirit inspired by HRH Tuanku Sultan.
"PKNS wishes to thank the people of Selangor, especially the fans, who have come together as one to support us as the representative of the state of Selangor."
This would be only the second time a club team is representing the state in the series which began in 2001, after the Petaling Jaya Municipal Council in 2004.
PKNS are currently ninth in the Super League standings and have not won in their last five matches in all competitions.
Singapore are the current holder of the Sultan of Selangor's Cup after defeating Selangor 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw at the Shah Alam Stadium last year.
