FAS response to media query on AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 ticketing


“Ticketing information took longer than usual as we worked with the relevant authorities to ensure that the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 safe management measures and security protocols put in place would ensure that the tournament would be safe and enjoyable for all. There were also updates to the launch of Vaccinated Travel Lane countries, like Malaysia and Indonesia for example, hence we needed to ensure that the guidelines were aligned and updated in preparation of welcoming football fans from the region to our stadiums while ensuring that the health and safety of all spectators are prioritised.”


“The maximum spectator capacity will be up to 10,000 at National Stadium and up to 1,000 at Bishan Stadium, which is less than one-fifth of the venues’ full 55,000 and 6,000 seating capacities respectively. This ensures that fans are adequately spaced out with one-meter safe distancing between groups at all times, in line with prevailing Safe Management Measures. At both venues, seating allocations will be more stringent than the current social gathering group size allowed (i.e. up to five persons per group), with seating in groups of two at the National Stadium and single seating at Bishan Stadium. The National Stadium will be divided into sectors of no more than 500pax, with no intermingling allowed across sectors. Away fans have been allocated about 20 percent of the spectator capacity for Singapore match days at the National Stadium. For non-Singapore match days and Group B match days, away fans will be allocated about 30 percent of spectator capacity.”


“We received over 6,000 submissions for pre-registration of tickets.”


“Broadcast information will be announced shortly by SPORTFIVE, the commercial partners of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020.”
