Spectator limit removed, F&B allowed at SPL matches
Match venues can now admit up to their maximum capacity while food and beverage can be consumed as safe management measures continue to ease
SINGAPORE, 5 MAY 2022 – Spectator capacity limits at AIA Singapore Premier League (SPL) match venues will no longer apply starting this Friday, 6 May 2022.
Food and beverage can also be supplied and consumed at all SPL matches, in accordance with the government directive of further easing of community safe management measures (SMMs) that took effect on 26 April 2022.
This means that each of the five SPL match venues for this season can admit spectators up to their maximum capacity: 6,000 for Jalan Besar Stadium, 5,000 for Our Tampines Hub and 3,000 each for Toa Payoh Stadium, Hougang Stadium and Jurong East Stadium.
While safe distancing will no longer be required, mask-wearing is encouraged once inside the stadium. As per Sport Singapore, Vaccination-Differentiated SMMs (VDS) are required for spectator events with more than 500 persons and spectators are required to be fully vaccinated* in order to gain entry. Checks will be conducted via the TraceTogether application. For safety reasons, the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) requires children aged 12 years old and below, regardless of their vaccination status, to be accompanied with a fully-vaccinated adult in order to gain entry.
Each of the eight SPL clubs will undertake all ticketing operations for their respective home matches and fans are advised to check in with the respective home clubs for specific ticketing details. They may also refer to the SPL website at https://bit.ly/22spltix.
Fans who enter will be subjected to the usual security protocols at matches, which include bag checks. As such, fans are advised not to bring bags, as well as prohibited items, when attending the matches. Food and beverages will be allowed into the stadiums. Musical instruments, banners and flags are subjected to approval at point of entry and must not contravene security and/or regulatory measures.
The second round of the 2022 SPL commences tomorrow evening with Hougang United taking on the Lion City Sailors at Hougang Stadium at 7.45pm in the first match of Matchweek 8.
