FAS’ response to media query on nomination for AFC Executive Committee (Term 2019-2023)
“Mr Winston Lee was nominated by the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) to stand for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Executive Committee (EXCO) elections, for the term 2019 – 2023.
“Mr Lee had been a part of the AFC EXCO since 2011, and was elected as one of its vice-presidents in 2015. As it is not mandatory for candidates to hold any official position in the Member Association (MA) that nominates him/her, it is on merit of his contributions to both Singapore and Asian football, as well as the support from the other Asian MAs for Mr Lee, that the FAS has decided to nominate him in order for him to continue his work.”
