FAS response to media query on match official appointment at FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023


“The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) is both delighted and proud that Muhammad Taqi has been selected to be one of the 19 Video Match Officials for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. It is yet another feather in his cap after his similar appointment at the recent FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament and a continued testament to Taqi’s ability, dedication, commitment, and level of sacrifice. This appointment also makes him the first Singaporean to officiate at both the men’s and women’s World Cups, and we are confident that Taqi will do the nation proud once again.”


Nazeer Hussain, Director (Referees), Football Association of Singapore
