The number of spectators allowed at Singapore Premier League (SPL) matches will be further increased from Friday (Apr 1). 

Following the updated Safe Management Measures (SMMs) announced on Mar 27 by Sport Singapore, the limit for each venue will now be capped at 75 per cent.

This means that Jalan Besar Stadium can host up to 4,500 fans, Our Tampines Hub up to 3,750 fans and up to 2,250 fans each for Toa Payoh Stadium, Hougang Stadium and Jurong East Stadium, said the Football Association of Singapore (FAS). 

The consumption of food and drinks will also be permitted in areas within the venue specially designated for such consumption, subject to prevailing dining-in activity requirements, which include safe distancing and group size limits of 10 persons.

Consumption of food and drinks at spectators stands is still not allowed.

Re-entry into the stadiums will also be allowed once more.

Spectators must be fully vaccinated to gain entry, and children aged 12 and below, regardless of their vaccination status, must be accompanied by a fully-vaccinated adult to gain entry.

The FAS also announced that two of the Young Lions’ matches in April will also be rescheduled to allow them to embark on a local centralised training in preparation for the 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The Young Lions’ matches against Geylang International FC on Apr 23 and Tampines Rovers FC on Apr 27 will both be postponed to June 21 and Aug 24 respectively, and will kick-off at 7:45pm.

The SPL will resume on Apr 1 with four matches in match-week five, starting with the clash between Hougang United FC and Albirex Niigata FC.
