When will it really be game over at the National Stadium? (TODAY, 22 July 2008)

Letter from Jason Chiam Chiah Sern

 

I REFER to the decision by the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) to hold a friendly game between the Olympic-bound Brazilian soccer squad and a Singapore Selection at the National Stadium in the report “Get ready to Samba, S’pore”(July 21).

 

While I congratulate the FAS on being able to attract the Brazilians to play a friendly match in Singapore, I am appalled by the decision to hold the game at the National Stadium.

 

Since last year, we were told umpteen times, that a particular match would be the last at the stadium, and the faithful among us have trooped to the grand old dame to soak in the nostalgia before she is pulled down to make way for the new sports hub.

 

But time and time again, new matches have been lined up at the stadium. I also remember attending a sing-along concert touted as the last event before the stadium is levelled, only to hear of more events being held there.

 

I think this has to stop.

 

If it is really the final game at the stadium, it should be the final game. Period.
