SINGAPORE (14 Sept 2022) – “It is with great sorrow that I have learnt of the passing of Mr. Lim Kia Tong, President of the Football Association of Singapore and Vice President of the Asean Football Federation.
We are all saddened and pained at the loss of this extraordinary man, whose ideals and contributions we have always admired and respected.
The football community has lost a brother, mentor, adviser and intellectual who had provided valuable guidance and advice whenever called upon to do so.
The memory of his leadership, passion, humour and commitment will always remain a source of inspiration to us.
I am certain that his legacy will forever be remembered and cherished. The best tribute we can pay to Mr. Lim is to stay true to his legacy and continue his purposeful work.
On behalf of the AFF Council and Secretariat, I extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to his family, colleagues in FAS and the football community in Singapore.”
