We wish to clarify that Mr Bernard Tan’s statement that the FAS has spent a ‘quarter of a million’ on grassroots football refers to the amount spent on the National Football League (NFL) and the Island-Wide League (IWL). The statement of accounts, as reflected in the FAS Annual Report, is prepared in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards. The accounts, audited by a public accounting firm, give a true and fair view of the financial position of the FAS.

The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) is aware of the incident that took place during the FA Cup match between Balestier United Recreation Club and Singapore Armed Forces Sports Association on Saturday night.

At the end of the day, the result matters but we believe we had a good game today, and with all the chances that we had, we shouldn’t have lost – at least a draw. I don’t think Cambodia had more chances than Singapore. We had three hit the crossbar, three sitters... Hopefully we can get better before the next international game.

The employability and long-term prospects for our players after their footballing careers are important to us. Since 2014, we have established a scheme termed the “Career Enrichment Scheme (CES)” for S.League players to help them assess diverse career options after they retire from football.

We are looking forward to the game tomorrow night against Cambodia. I want to give other players who have travelled and trained with us for the last nine days a chance to be in an international ‘A’ game. This is a good platform for these players to express themselves and show their abilities.

We are working closely with the affected sit-out S.League clubs that has to vacate the Sport Singapore premises as they are no longer playing in the S.League. The affected clubs are Tanjong Pagar United FC, Woodlands Wellington FC and Gombak United FC. All parties are working closely together to ensure minimal disruption and inconvenience caused by the relocation. In the past, sit-out clubs have returned to the S.League.
