Football: Earlier kick-off time for Juventus-Singapore game on Aug 16

The kick-off time for the Juventus-Singapore game on Aug 16 has been moved 90 minutes earlier due to operational reasons, say organisers.

SINGAPORE: The Aug 16 curtain-raiser football game between Juventus Football Club and a Singapore selection team at the Sports Hub's new National Stadium will kick off at 6pm, instead of the original 7.30pm. This is due to "operational reasons", organisers said in a statement on Tuesday (July 29).

The star-studded Juventus team is likely to feature new signings Patrice Evra from Manchester United and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, among other players.

Other notable names include World Cup star Paul Pogba, and Italy’s goalkeeper and captain Gianluigi Buffon. Also in the lineup is Carlos Tevez, the scorer of 19 goals in Serie A last season for Juventus.

Tickets are available online at Sports Hub Tix (, and they are priced from S$45 to S$180 for adults and S$30 to S$45 for children.
