SG SPORTS HUB LOSE HOSTING PREMIER LEAGUE TROPHY TO HK,

Another blow to the Singapore Sports Hub, as reports have emerged that the most successful event staged at the New National Stadium, the Barclays Asia Premier League Trophy, will not be coming back to Singapore this year. Instead, they will move back to Hong Kong and Shanghai. This despite a successful run here in Singapore in 2015 that saw a record turnout of 82,000 fans, with Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore hailing the 2015 event as the "best ever". This will represent another blow to the Singapore Sports Hub and its consortium, which had promised Singapore fans to bring the best sporting spectacle to the stadium.

I am utterly disappointed with your service rendered. I somehow managed to purchase the Jay Chou concert tickets online yesterday (23rd Feb) and even got my email confirmation and e-ticket. Shortly after, I received a call that my ticket needs to be void, as ticket sales should only start on 24th Feb (10am).

SEA GAMES FANS AT SPORTS HUB CANNOT WATCH FIREWORKS BECAUSE OF DESIGN FLAW

Why is the roof of the sports hub not retractable or at least see through? If you are going to launch big opening ceremonies for major events at the sports hub, that means you will use fire works right? If you use fire works, but the roof of the sports hub cannot retract or see through, then what is the point of having fire works? The people seated inside the stadium will just be "hearing" the fire works happening outside of the sports hub and looking at a screen, whereas the people outside of the sports hub will be enjoying the full view of the fire works!

GOVT: WE WON’T PAY S’PORE SPORTS HUB A SINGLE CENT UNTIL PITCH IS UP TO STANDARD

Sport Singapore (SportSG), the governing body for Singapore sports, maintains that it will not pay for the Singapore Sports Hub until the National Stadium pitch is of a standard befitting the magnitude of the sports events being held at the new arena.
