Up to 250 fans of the Singapore Premier League will be able to attend matches from this weekend onwards without the need for any form of COVID-19 testing, as per guidelines announced by the COVID-19 Multi-Ministry Taskforce on 24 March, the Football Association of Singapore reminded fans through a statement on 21 April.
This weekend’s matches will see Hougang United FC face off against Lion City Sailors FC and Tanjong Pagar United FC hosting Tampines Rovers FC on 24 April.
Then a day later, Balestier Khalsa FC will attempt to take points away from league leaders Albirex Niigata FC while the Young Lions will face off against Geylang International FC.
In order to gain entry, fans need to purchase a physical ticket for $8 (adults) and $5 (concession) at a dedicated booth at each match venue.
Sales will start two hours before the matches kick off and a wrist tag will be issued per ticket holder at the point of the entry to the match.
Fans will be allowed access into the venue 60 minutes before kick-off.
Lion City Sailors midfielder Shahdan Sulaiman said that he “cannot wait for the crowds to be back again as it has been more than a year since fans were allowed to be in the stands.”
“Even though the numbers are understandably limited for now, I am sure all the players are really looking forward to the support!”
Fans who enter will be subjected to safe-distancing protocols as well as the usual security protocols at matches, which include bag checks.
