FAS’ reply to media query regarding the King George’s Stand
We appreciate the understanding and approvals of the relevant authorities in granting extensions for the continued use of the King George‚Äôs Stand at Jalan Besar Stadium over the past three years.
We are also thankful to our partners, including Kingsmen and Sport Singapore, for their support towards our continuous efforts in bringing more fans together. With an approximate capacity of 1,500, the KGS enabled us to increase the seating capacity of the stadium which in turn allowed more fans to turn up and support our teams in action over the past few years.
The final extension for the use of the temporary seating structures expired on 29 August 2015, and the dismantling and reinstatement works would commence in November.
The KGS was used as an interim measure to increase the seating capacity of Jalan Besar Stadium. With the expiry of the extension (for the use of the temporary seating structures), the dismantling and reinstatement works would commence in November.
We will continue to work with our stakeholders and partners and explore various ways of enhancing match-day and viewing experience for our fans.
