Lion City Sailors will continue to play their Singapore Premier League (SPL) matches as scheduled, after the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) confirmed that the league will be allowed to carry on behind closed doors.

In light of a recent spike in Covid-19 infections in the community, the Singapore government announced tighter safe management measures that will come into force on May 16.

However, as all SPL players and officials undergo mandatory swab testing, the new measures will not affect the status of the league.

“Strict protocols will continue to be in place, including zonal demarcation before and after matches to ensure the safety and health of all stakeholders are of top priority,” said the FAS on Friday (May 14).

Sailors fans can still catch the team in action LIVE via SPL’s Facebook page and Youtube channel, as well as the Facebook page of 1 Play Sports.

The Sailors will next take on Tanjong Pagar United this Sunday (May 16), 5.30pm, at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
