Spectator limits at AIA Singapore Premier League (SPL) match venues will be removed from May 6 onwards, the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) announced on Thursday (May 5).

Food and beverages can also be supplied and consumed at all SPL matches, in accordance with the further easing of community safe management measures (SMMs) that took effect on Apr 26.

The lifting of capacity limits means that each of the five SPL match venues can admit spectators up to their maximum capacity: 6,000 for Jalan Besar Stadium, 5,000 for Our Tampines Hub and 3,000 each for Toa Payoh Stadium, Hougang Stadium and Jurong East Stadium.

While safe distancing is no longer required, mask-wearing is encouraged once inside the stadium. Checks will also be conducted via the TraceTogether application as Vaccination-Differentiated SMMs (VDS) are required for spectator events with more than 500 persons. 

Spectators are required to be fully vaccinated in order to gain entry, and children below the age of 12 must be accompanied by a fully-vaccinated adult regardless of their vaccination status.

Fans are also advised against bringing bags and prohibited items as they will be subject to the usual security protocols at matches, which include bag checks. Musical instruments, banners and flags are subjected to approval at point of entry and must not contravene security and regulatory measures.

Each of the eight SPL clubs will undertake all ticketing operations for their respective home matches. Fans are advised to check in with the respective clubs for specific ticketing details.

Matches will also be available online via online streaming on the SPL YouTube channel, Mediacorp’s MeWATCH platform and on broadcast via Singtel and Starhub.

The second round of the 2022 SPL season will commence on Saturday (May 7) with Hougang United taking on the Lion City Sailors at Hougang Stadium at 7:45pm in the first match of Matchweek 8.
