FAS’ reply to media queries on JDT fans being turned away at LionsXII vs JDT match on Saturday
The safety of our fans is of paramount importance to the Football Association of Singapore (FAS).
In consultation with the authorities and security agencies, FAS has various security measures in place at the stadium on match day.
In line with our existing SOPs, we also arrange the seating of the away fans to be separate from the home fans for security and safety issues.
A number of Malaysian fans of Johor Darul Takzim were denied entry into the stadium as they were not holders of tickets to the rightful and appropriate fan seating sectors.
FAS will continue to work closely with our authorities and agencies to ensure the safety of our fans during matches.
