FAS’ Reply To Media Query Regarding Synthetic Pitch At Jalan Besar Stadium


“The current pitch at Jalan Besar Stadium utilises natural recycled materials, composing of coconut husk and recycled cork material. The safety of our players and officials is of utmost importance to us and we conduct maintenance of the pitch on a regular basis. Among others, we would brush the pitch twice-a-week, top up the infills every quarter and allow the pitch sufficient rest ‚Äì to ensure that it is safe for players and officials.

“FIFA conducts regular inspection of our pitch, and we have always adhered to their requirements relating to pitches. We have written to FIFA on this matter and we will await their advice on the next course of action. We will continue to consult and work closely with FIFA and all other relevant authorities to maintain the quality of our pitch.”
