No charge to watch DPMM FC’s last game

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

SINGAPORE-League (S-League) leaders DPMM FC yesterday announced that Saturday’s season-ender against Balestier Khalsa FC at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas will be free of charge.
Kick-off is at 8.15pm, and DPMM FC are favourites to win the S-League for the first time as they have a two-point lead over second-placed Tampines Rovers FC, who face Harimau Muda (Malaysian national Under-22 football team) at the Jurong West Stadium in Singapore at the same time.
Nothing will stop DPMM FC from clinching the title should they defeat Balestier, but Tampines will need to win by a two-goal margin should the match in Brunei end in a draw for DPMM FC.
T-shirts will be handed out to spectators on a first come first serve basis, and there are also 25 lucky draw prizes up for grabs including three return tickets – with the destination yet to be determined – sponsored by Royal Brunei (RB).
DPMM FC are looking to avoid history repeating itself as the 2012 title race went down the wire as well – and there was heartbreak for the club.
Brunei’s only professional team ended second to Tampines after dropping 2-0 to Balestier in a must-win game for them on home soil, with the Stags winning the trophy after skipper Fahrudin Mustafic converted a penalty to give them a 1-0 win over Harimau Muda.
