FAS’ reply to Media Queries on Haze contingency plans
The ‘Florence Nightingale’ of local football, Nurhafizah Abu Sujad broadens the reach of her quest to keep footballers in top condition, joining the Lion City Sailors while retaining her role as National Teams Head Physiotherapist.
The health and well-being of our stakeholders, including our fans, players and officials, are of paramount importance to the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) and the S.League management.
We have implemented Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), which was reviewed last year, with regards to bad weather conditions including haze. As a guiding principle for S.League matches, should the PSI levels surpass 150, a decision will be made by the match officials on whether or not to continue the S.League match.
The same principle applies to training sessions for S.League teams, who have been advised to halt training when PSI goes past 150.
Should the haze reach ‘hazardous’ levels, matches will be postponed and rescheduled till a later date.
