SINGAPORE — Six players from the Singapore football SEA Games squad will face disciplinary hearings after they broke curfew while in the Philippines, said the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) on Thursday (Dec 5).

“Six Singapore footballers broke curfew while at the SEA Games, breaching the team’s code of conduct,” said the SNOC. 

“They were given a stern formal warning and will face disciplinary hearings upon their return to Singapore after the SEA Games.”
