FAS response to media query on Albirex Niigata appeal


“While the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) did receive an appeal from Albirex Niigata FC (S) regarding the attribution of one of the goals scored during its Singapore Premier League (SPL) match with Tampines Rovers FC on 15 October 2022, the appeal was deemed to be incomplete as it did not meet the requirements specified under Article 49.1 of the SPL 2022 Regulations which states:


“‘Any Club intending to lodge a protest against their opponents for any violation of the Tournament procedure in or about the Match shall do so in writing signed by the General/Club Manager or Hon. Secretary of the Club or a responsible Official of the Club to the FAS Competitions Department within forty-eight (48) hours from the end of the Match with a deposit of Two Thousand Dollars (SGD$2000.00).’


“The club was notified to re-submit its complete appeal but as of the deadline today, the FAS has not received the complete submission.


“Therefore, the club’s appeal has been rendered as invalid and the match referee’s decision stands.”


– FAS Director (Competitions), Aloysius Vetha
