Promotion poster featuring Singapore National Team players for AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 at Bishan MRT station
An IG poll was conducted to see how many noticed this poster

There is some marketing buzz going on for the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup though I am not sure how many noticed this banner while strolling along this busy walkway of Bishan MRT station?

Not that far away from this station is Bishan Stadium - the venue for most of the Group B matches. One thing to take note of is the stadium is installed with a new natural grass surface (picture below) which I had a look at recently from the nearby Bishan Sports Hall.

Being a surface that was only laid not that long ago, not sure if it is able to withstand the robustness of the team like the Vietnamese who are known for their pace. (maybe someone with some horticultural knowledge can answer that)?

Will Vietnam thrive on this new surface?

In the meantime, the delay in the announcement of the ticketing and broadcasting details caused some anxieties among the local fans during the run-up to the biennial showpiece.

Yet when the ticketing details were announced on 27th November, there was some uproar over the prices to be borne by the fans (despite some concessions offered for early bird purchasing) and some other issues.

50% each of poll participant responded their preferred mode to watch AFF Suzuki Cup 2020 - one half watching broadcast, another half preferred at venue

Nonetheless, despite all the ruckus among some supporters, it was announced that the opening double-header on the 5th of November is a "sold-out" for allocations meant for Singapore fans.

And perhaps to make things easier for those who decided to stay away, it was announced that Mediacorp, the national public broadcaster, will show all the 26 matches on their streaming platform.

But appreciation must be given to those who are behind the scene to make the hosting of this tournament possible in such a tumultuous period.

Thank you for your effort.
