Yemen-Singapore postponed

FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) have jointly decided that the match between Yemen and Singapore of the Asian Men’s Preliminary Competition for the Olympic Football Tournaments London 2012 is to be postponed by one week, namely for Wednesday 2 March 2011.

The joint decision was taken in order to ensure that all parties concerned can organise this match and play it in a totally safe and secure environment. In the event that the situation in Yemen does not clearly improve in the next days, the match would need to take place on neutral ground; in such case, the venue would be selected in consultation with all the parties concerned, including the national associations of Yemen and Singapore.
