Lions set to play two friendly matches in June
SINGAPORE, 27 MAY 2019 – The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) today announced that the Singapore National Team will be playing two International ‘A’ friendlies in the upcoming FIFA international window between 3 and 11 June.
The Lions, who last gathered during their outing in the AIRMARINE Cup 2019 held in March, will come together once again to play against Solomon Islands on 8 June before taking on Myanmar on 11 June. Both matches will be played at the National Stadium.
FAS General Secretary Yazeen Buhari commented: “The upcoming international window is a vital period for the National Team to gather for centralised training and friendly matches, especially for the overseas players. The two friendlies will help the team build momentum from the positive performances in the last international window. In addition, these matches will also aid the team in their preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers which will be played later this year.
“Coming on the back of the last two international friendlies played away from home, we made a deliberate attempt to schedule the June matches at the Home of the Lions in order for our fans to be able to support and rally the Lions at our very own National Stadium. We are also thankful to have the support of our venue partner, Singapore Sports Hub, who made it possible for the friendlies to be played at the Home of the Lions.”
Bryn Jones, Chairman of Singapore Sports Hub, said, “We are thrilled that the Lions will be playing two international matches at the National Stadium this coming June. It will be an awesome time for Singaporeans as our national team compete against Solomon Islands and Myanmar, and we hope everyone will come ready to roar in support of our home team.”
