FAS investigates mass brawl with police called to Singapore NFL game

Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson assess Singapore's upcoming November fixtures against Lebanon and Bahrain.

The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) is investigating an amateur league game which saw police forced to intervene after a mass brawl on Sunday night.

The incident occurred during a top-of-the-table clash in the National Football League (NFL) Division One match between SAFSA and Yishun Sentek Mariners, in which the former won 3-2 to leapfrog the latter.

FAS said in a statement: "The FAS does not condone any ungentlemanly behaviour that taints the name of our sport, and brings it into disrepute.

"As the matter is under investigation, we are unable to make any further comments."

Things flared up when Sentek Mariners' defender Zulfadhli Suzliman was dismissed in the dying moments of the game, sparking a free-for-all before a series of scuffles near the byline and the dugout.

Play was stopped around 15 minutes before resuming, but police were already called in to record statements and investigate the incident.

Sentek Mariners coach Yakob Hashim, who is also a Football Association of Singapore (FAS) member, said the trouble began when one player verbally abused an opponent's mother.

"It is regrettable that such an incident has happened. Investigations are ongoing and we will cooperate fully with the relevant authorities," he told The Straits Times.

This incident is another black mark on Singapore football in 2017.

The national team have yet to win a game, there have been poor results by age-group teams, and a foreign club in Japan's Albirex Niigata (S) have swept all domestic trophies since the start of 2016.
