SINGAPORE — Here is a round-up of sports events and developments in Singapore in the past week (22 to 28 November):

Feng Tianwei qualifies for WTT Cup Finals at OCBC Arena

Singapore paddler Feng Tianwei will be among 32 men’s and women’s singles players competing at the inaugural World Table Tennis (WTT) Cup Finals at the OCBC Arena from 4 to 7 December.

The 35-year-old is currently ranked world No.11, allowing her to qualify for the season-ending event based on the ITTF table tennis world rankings published on 16 November. China’s Fan Zhendong and Chen Meng, the men’s and women’s world No.1 respectively, will be participating in the elite competition as well.

Up to 900 fans will be permitted to attend each session of the WTT Cup Finals, in accordance with prevailing safe management measures. They must either be fully vaccinated or undertake pre-even testing prior to attending. Tickets are available on SISTIC.

Suzuki Cup tickets on sale at FAS website

Tickets for the AFF Suzuki Cup tournament from 5 December to 1 January went on sale on Sunday (28 November) on the Football Association of Singapore website. For the first three days, only Group A match tickets will be sold, with Singapore fans given exclusive priority.

Tickets are priced at S$25 for adults and S$15 for children 12 years of age and under, with each ticket allowing access to both matches on double header match days. Fans will be allowed to purchase up to eight tickets per match day, and enjoy a 20 per cent discount if they purchase a full bundle of all four of Singapore’s Group A matches in the first three days of ticket sales.

Gates will open two hours before the first kick-off and fans can only enter the stadiums at the pre-allocated timing indicated on their tickets. All fans will be issued a coloured wrist tag for identification that allows re-entry on that match day, after showing proof of full vaccination and completing the mandatory bag checks.

Children aged 12 and below, who are exempted from vaccination, must be accompanied by an adult aged 21 years old and above. All children aged three and above will need a ticket for entry.

Strict safe distancing measures will be enforced in seating plans and allocation, which is limited to seating in groups of two at the National Stadium and single seats at Bishan Stadium, with one-metre safe distancing between groups. At the National Stadium, fans will be assigned to sectors of no more than 500 people each, with no intermingling allowed across sectors.

Food and drinks, including water, are not permitted in the stadiums and fans are required to wear their masks. Musical instruments are not permitted into the stadium, but banners and flags which do not contravene security and/or regulatory measures may be allowed, subjected to approval at point of entry.

Meanwhile, Singapore have named a 28-man squad for their Suzuki Cup campaign:

  • Goalkeepers: Hassan Sunny, Izwan Mahbud, Syazwan Buhari, Zharfan Rohaizad.

  • Defenders: Amirul Adli, Iqram Rifqi, Irfan Fandi, Nazrul Nazari, Nur Adam Abdullha, Safuwan Baharudin, Shakir Hamzah, Tajeli Salamat, Zulqarnaen Suzliman.

  • Midfielders: Adam Swandi, M. Anumanthan, Hami Syahin, Hariss Harun, Saifullah Akbar, Shahdan Sulaiman, Song Ui-young, Zulfahmi Arifin.

  • Forwards: Amy Recha, Faris Ramli, Gabriel Quak, Hafiz Nor, Ikhsan Fandi, Ilhan Fandi, Shawal Anuar.

HSBC Women’s World C’ships to return next March

Next year’s HSBC Women’s World Championship golf tournament will be held from 3 to 6 March at Sentosa Golf Club, with South Korea’s Kim Hyo-joo confirming that she will defend her title.

Kim, 26, had won this year’s tournament in April, following a back-and-forth final-day battle with Park In-bee and Hannah Green. Eventually, the 2014 Evian Championship winner delivered a stunning final round 64 to secure her first victory on the LPGA Tour in five years by a single stroke.

“To win such a big event after not having won for such a long time felt so amazing,” the current world No.9 said. The tournament has had so many unbelievable winners – almost all of them major winners – that it felt like such a huge win for me. The players kind of refer to it as ‘Asia’s Major’ and it definitely felt like a huge career moment for me winning against such a world-class field.”

No decisions or announcements regarding attendees at next year’s tournament will be made until closer to the event.

Launch of Safe Sport Unified Code

The Safe Sport Unified Code was launched on Tuesday (23 November) to provide the Singapore sporting community with a clear reference on what constitutes inappropriate behaviour.

The Unified Code set out the agreed standards of misconduct which threaten the core values of sport as well as other inappropriate acts such as grooming, wilful tolerance and abuse of processes related to reporting.

The categories of misconduct under the Unified Code are:

  • Offences under domestic laws

  • Sexual misconduct

  • Physical and psychological misconduct

  • Other inappropriate conduct

  • Misconduct related to process

The code was developed via a consultation process that spanned over nine months, with experts in safeguarding children and vulnerable groups from key governmental and non-governmental organisations, leaders in the Olympic and Paralympic movement, and the sporting community.

The Safe Sport Unified Code forms the bedrock of the Safe Sport Programme, a safeguarding framework to implement to code across the sporting ecosystem. National sports associations, as well as members and affiliates of the Singapore National Olympic Council and Singapore National Paralympic Council will be progressively onboarded to the programme next year.

Hong Kong Cyclothon opens virtual ride for global cyclists

The Hong Kong Cyclothon will return on 16 January next year with a new route that includes the Hong Kong section of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macao Bridge, as well as a virtual ride experience for cyclists around the world.

This year free virtual races will recreate the 26-km route of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macao Bridge section of the cyclothon. E-sports elements such as timed acceleration zones are also included to add excitement to the ride.

Participants can use their own training bike stations and join the virtual races directly through the cyclothon’s app, and check their time and ranking upon completion of the route.
