SINGAPORE, 04 January 2011: The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) held an Extraordinary General Meeting yesterday evening to approve the amendments to the FAS constitution in order to meet the charity registration requirements set in place by the Singapore Sports Council (SSC).
SSC had informed all National Sports Associations (NSAs) in 2009 that in order to qualify for SSC funding beginning with the Annual NSA Grant Exercise FY2011, charity registration was a pre-requisite for all NSAs and this is in keeping with the principles of ensuring that public funds disbursed to all NSAs through SSC were accounted for.
The proposed amendments to the FAS constitution were approved unanimously.
