The decision was made in lieu of the tightened COVID-19 measures announced on Tuesday.
Matches in the Singapore Premier League will be played behind closed doors till further notice, the Football Association of Singapore announced on Tuesday (May 4).
It was only last month when up to 250 fans were allowed to attend matches at the stadiums without testing required. Tickets to the Hougang United vs Lion City Sailors match on Apr 24 were all snapped up quickly.
“The well-being of the football fraternity and the wider general public will always be our top priority and we encourage all to adhere to the prevailing safe management measures,” explained the FAS in its media release.
The Sailors’ CEO Chew Chun-Liang added in a statement that while it was disappointing that fans can no longer support the team in person, the well-being and health of everyone remains a top priority.
“We urge our fans to adhere to the new COVID-19 measures implemented by the authorities, so that we can get through this storm together as quickly as possible. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before the restrictions are lifted, and fans will be allowed back into stadiums again.”
It will also be broadcast live on Singtel TV and StarHub TV.
