Local football fans, rejoice. 

Up to 500 fans will be allowed entry to Singapore Premier League (SPL) matches this weekend, starting with Friday’s blockbuster match between league leaders Albirex Niigata (S) and third-placed Hougang United at the Jurong East Stadium. 

The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) added that the capacity will be further increased to 1000 fans starting from Aug 19. 

Fans who want to enter the stadiums will require proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative antigen rapid test (ART) result.  

Vaccinated fans will only be able to attend matches if the match takes place at least 14 days after they received their second dose. 

Those who wish to enter using a negative ART result must take the test at a practitioner certified by the Ministry of Health, and the result must be valid until the end of the match. 

COVID-19 self-test kit results will not be accepted for entry, FAS said. 

Fans looking to attend these games can get their tickets at dedicated booths which open two hours before kick-off at each stadium. Adult tickets will cost $8, while concession tickets $5. 

“Fans who enter will be subjected to safe-distancing protocols as well as the usual security protocols at matches, which include bag checks. As such, fans are advised not to bring bags, as well as prohibited items, when attending the matches,” FAS said, adding that fans should arrive early to avoid crowding.

SPL fans will still be able to watch every match LIVE on broadcast at Singtel TV, StarHub TV and live streaming online via the SPL Facebook page and YouTube channel, as well as the Facebook page of 1 Play Sports
