FAS PROVISIONAL COUNCIL APPOINTED BY MCCY

SINGAPORE, 15 NOVEMBER 2016: A Provisional Council to helm the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) has been appointed by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) to lead the Association on an interim basis until 31 Mar 2017 or until the Association’s elections are called.

FAS Vice-President Mr Lim Kia Tong will assume the lead role in the Provisional Council as the interim President. Alongside Mr Lim will be Mr Bernard Tan, Mr Edwin Tong, Mr S. Thavaneson, Mr Tan Soo Nan, Mr Sarjit Singh and Mr Razali Saad, all of whom served as members from the previous Council.

Mr Lim, who is currently in Papua New Guinea as head of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, said: “I am honoured to be selected to lead the Provisional Council in the interim period, and we will work to ensure that all ongoing plans and programmes of the FAS will continue during this period. There are several key issues that we will be looking at, including the future of the S.League and National Football League revamp to a two-tier promotion and relegation system. Also on our list of priorities will be the cultivation of grassroots football such as women’s and school’s football as well as community participation as a whole. The Provisional Council will work with stakeholders such as Sport Singapore (SportSG), the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Tote Board. The Council will be establishing communication channels to form an open eco-system of discussion, that will include not only the key stakeholders, but also its Ordinary Members and the general public.”

FAS President Mr Zainudin Nordin expressed his appreciation, saying: “It certainly has been a privilege to serve at various levels of the FAS Council especially as President in the past seven years. I wish to thank the outgoing FAS Council, staff and management for their hard work and resilience. The incoming Provisional Council will have the mandate to continue the ongoing work at FAS. I am confident that with the unanimous support at the EGM of the amended Constitution, the Provisional Council will be able to affect the smooth transition of leadership under the revised Constitution of FAS.”

The Football Association of Singapore thanks all outgoing Members of the FAS Council for their invaluable contributions to Singapore Football.
