SINGAPORE – Local football fans can expect to see the Lions live from the comfort of their own homes, as Mediacorp announced on Tuesday November 30 that it will broadcast all 26 games of the Suzuki Cup 2020 for free from December 5 to January 1 .
Matches will be available live and on demand on meWATCH while match highlights will also be available via meWATCH and Mediacorp Entertainment on YouTube.
For fans keen to watch Asean Football Federation (AFF) Championship games live at the National Stadium and Bishan Stadium, the Football Association of Singapore said on Saturday in response to questions that 10,000 fans would be allowed for each match day to the capacity of 55,000 National Stadium. At Bishan Stadium with a capacity of 6,000 seats, 1,000 people will be admitted each match day.
Tickets are on sale now and are priced at $ 25 for adults and $ 15 for children 12 and under for each game day.
Only those who are fully vaccinated will be allowed to participate in the games, and no refund will be given to those who fail to provide proof of vaccination and are refused entry.
Safe management measures will be strictly enforced through the plans and seating arrangements. The supporters of the national stadium will be seated in pairs while those of Bishan will be seated individually, with a safety distance of one meter.
At the national stadium, supporters will be assigned to sectors of no more than 500 people each, with no mixing allowed between sectors. This will be reinforced by the use of colored wrist tags for each spectator, which will also serve as an identification allowing entry into the stadium for that match day.
Hosts Singapore are looking for a record-breaking fifth AFF Championship and will meet Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Timor Leste in Group A.
They will kick off the 10-team tournament against Myanmar at the National Stadium on December 5. They will then face the Philippines (December 8), Timor Leste (December 14) and five-time champion Thailand (December 18).
In the other group, defending champions Vietnam will face Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos.
The top two teams from each group will advance to the two-way semi-finals, before meeting in the two-way final.
