Add food together, and you have yourself a perfect all-around entertainment. Apart from able to watch your favourite sports, you also get to play other indoor entertainments like darts and pools.
I also make some recommendations and ideas of what you might spend in other scenarios. Note: This is based on the match below which I went to alone.
Daddy and Daughter at the football. You can get to the stadium from the Chinatown area with no transfer required.

I recommend sitting at the northern end. The game got off to a goal scoring frenzy, with the scores at to Kuala Lumpur inside the first 20 minutes.
When I left the score was and it ended up being ! You can read about some incidents here.
Is it safe to watch football in Malaysia? I try and verify the information on the club websites and from their Facebook pages. I went to watch a match in Ipoh as well, and everything was similar with food etc.
There were food stands outside and the ticket costs were 13 RM.
