We have noted FAS’s statement on 3 July 2024 regarding a goal in our Singapore Premier League match against Albirex Niigata (S) that was erroneously awarded due to an opposition player being in an offside position, and we would like to place on record our appreciation of their efforts in conducting a thorough investigation and review of internal processes to prevent a repeat of a similar incident. We fully recognise the huge responsibilities that match officials have and are very mindful of the intricacies that come with their roles. 

We also are aware that a club official made certain comments on his personal social media account pertaining to the incident. The post has since been taken down and can no longer be viewed from his personal account. While the post was not intended to unfairly criticise, the official has acknowledged it was inappropriate for him to air his views through social media and understands that feedback should be submitted through the proper channels. We have taken disciplinary action against the club official. 

At the Lion City Sailors, we uphold values of respect and integrity – and we will continue to work with FAS to foster the betterment of Singapore football together.
