KUALA LUMPUR: Members of the public are not allowed to bring air horns, cigarettes, knives and firecrackers into the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil during the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games opening ceremony on Aug 19.

They were also reminded not to carry other items such as scissors, umbrellas, helmets, canned and bottle drinks as well as snacks into the stadium.

“The Malaysia Stadium Corporation has the right to confiscate all banned items from being brought into the stadium,” the Malaysian SEA Games Organising Committee (MASOC) said in a statement today.

MASOC said spectators found in possession of the banned items, which include sunflower seeds and nuts, may be denied entry into the stadium.

It said this is to ensure the safety of the spectators and smooth running of the event.

“Stadium authorities will be conducting inspections at all entrances during the occasion,” MASOC said in the statement, adding that spectators should be well behaved at all times.

“Offensive, violent or threatening behaviour are not accepted and (spectators are) advised to respect each other.”

The public is also advised to arrive early to avoid congestion at the entry points to the stadium, besides keeping the stadium clean.
