The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) welcomes the announcement made today by Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) on the approval to resume the Singapore Premier League (SPL) from 17 October 2020. The current 2020 AIA SPL season has been on enforced hiatus since the suspension on 24 March due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent safe management measures.
On the subject of reigning SPL champions Brunei DPMM’s participation status for this season, Mr Lim said: “Brunei DPMM FC has been an integral part of our League for years and their continued participation on its resumption is very much treasured. Currently, they are a part of the competition format on resumption. We have provided Brunei DPMM FC with an option of having their matches played in Singapore considering the recommended protocols. We await their response by Monday 12 October after which we will make the necessary preparations for the resumption. We remain hopeful that they will provide a favourable reply to our proposal.”
