Singapore Cancel Malaysia Friendly

SINGAPORE - The match between Singapore and Malaysia at the new Sports Hub’s National Stadium on Aug 8 has been postponed and rescheduled to a later date.

In a statement issued today (May 24), Football Association of Singapore (FAS) General secretary Winston Lee said more time was needed to prepare for the staging of the fixture (yeah, cos three or fours years just ain't enough time), and that the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) had been informed.

“The initial response to the game has been very encouraging, confirming our belief that a Singapore-Malaysia game will always be a major crowd-puller,” he said.

“Given the high turnout expected, and to ensure a truly memorable experience and spectacle for every spectator, FAS has concluded that it will need more time to prepare for the event.”

This means the match between Italian Serie A champions Juventus and a Singapore Selection on Aug 16 is set to be the first football match to be held at the 55,000-seater National Stadium after it is completed next month.
