Members Pass Amendments To FAS Constitution At EGM




SINGAPORE, 7 NOVEMBER 2016: The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) today announced that proposed amendments to the FAS Constitution have been approved by its affiliates and Ordinary Members at the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held this evening at Jalan Besar Stadium.


The proposed amendments were unanimously passed with all 38 members present voting to approve the changes.


The amendments were recommended by the constitution taskforce led by FAS Vice-President Mr Lim Kia Tong, and made in close consultation with world governing body FIFA as well as our affiliates and Members. These proposed amendments were made to align the FAS with FIFA’s statutes, of which a pertinent point is to have a freely elected council to head the Association.


The new 15-member FAS Council will see the President, Deputy President, four Vice Presidents and three other members elected as a slate, while individual candidates can contest the six remaining seats on the Council.


There will also be three further positions on the Council, co-opted at the discretion of the Executive Committee, that will be allocated to candidates who possess technical skills and knowledge beneficial to the administration of football.


The new Constitution will now be sent to the authorities for final clearance, and the Elections will then be called in due course.
