A Football Association of Singapore Centres of Excellence (COE) U-21 league match between Tampines Rovers and Geylang International scheduled for 22 May at 7.45pm at the Toa Payoh Stadium has been called off because the floodlights at one corner of the venue could not be turned on.
See panoramic photo below.
Photos from the venue were submitted to TMSG by a fan who was waiting for the match to start through a DM on Facebook.
The fan sent us a series of photos from the venue, which also showed members of the public jogging around the track, but that is a story for another day.
The floodlights from one end on the right of the stadium, near the entrance beside the sports hall, was the one which the venue owners could not seem to turn on.
Toa Payoh Stadium is a Sport Singapore facility.
See set of photos below.
The TMSG fan who submitted the photos, said, “Just a sad state of Singapore football, and the problems runs very deep.”
Players from both teams, and handful of fans and family members who were at the Toa Payoh Stadium left the venue by 8.10pm, after it was confirmed that the match would be called off.
Instead of coming up with grandiose plans to qualify for the World Cup, the people in charge of charity Singapore’s football and sports could get their act together and ensure that facilities are up to mark for proper football development.
These are the other matches which were scheduled for 22 May.
