FAS’ Reply To Media Query Regarding S.League Match Postponement
“The S.League game between Home United FC (HUFC) vs Balestier Khalsa FC originally scheduled for 14 April 2017 has been postponed to 2 May 2017, following a request made by HUFC so that they can have a longer preparation period for their final AFC Cup group game against Yadanarbon on 18 April 2017. After careful consideration, a decision was made to reschedule the match so as to provide better support to our clubs representing the country in continental competitions.
“It was for the same reason that Tampines Rovers FC (TRFC) was given a bye for the upcoming S.League match week, so that they too can better prepare for their AFC Cup game against Felda United on 19 April. TRFC had requested for their S.League game against Geylang International FC on 8 April 2017 to be rescheduled. However, their request was turned down as that S.League game was only held after their AFC Cup match on 4 April 2017.”
