SINGAPORE — Singapore’s national football team will embark on qualifying for the 2022 World Cup Finals in September, and the Football Association of Singapore has announced ticketing details for the first three home matches of the campaign.

Singapore are drawn into a tough Group D, together with Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Yemen and Palestine. These matches will be the Lions’ first competitive matches under new coach Tatsuma Yoshida.

“It is important for us to do well in our home matches, in order to stand a chance of progressing to the next stage of qualifying for not just the World Cup but also the Asian Cup,” the Japanese said in a media release on Tuesday (20 August).

“A vociferous home atmosphere would make the key difference and will undoubtedly spur our team on.”

Two of the home matches will be played at the National Stadium: against Yemen on 5 September and against Uzbekistan on 15 October. Tickets for both games will be priced at $15 (Category 1) and $10 (Concession).

The Lions’ second home match against Palestine on 10 September will be played at the Jalan Besar Stadium. Tickets for this match will be priced at $12 (Cat 1) and $8 (Concession).
