COVID-19: Safe Return to Football

The impact of COVID-19 has resulted in the suspension of all football activities since early March. In this time, the priority of the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) has been to safeguard the health and well-being of the community and to undertake its social responsibility to do everything it can to prevent the spread of the virus.

As Singapore enters into phase 2 of the post-circuit breaker, sports and recreation facilities are now allowed to re-open with safe management measures. The FAS has been working with our stakeholders and authorities to ensure that appropriate measures are adopted ahead of the resumption of footballing activities with the objective of safeguarding the safety of all participants and minimise the risk of communal infections are minimised.

These guidelines shall be adopted by all participants, venue operators, clubs and academies who conduct footballing activities, without compromise.

Safe Management Measures

All individuals who display any symptoms of respiratory illness such as flu, cough or shortness of breath and/or having a fever, or have any members in the same household who display any of the above symptoms, should not participate in any form of football activity until they are fully recovered.

All individuals who had been in recent contact with any individual/s who had tested positive for COVID-19 or under quarantine order in the last 14 days, should not participate in any form of football activity.
