SINGAPORE: Football fans on Saturday evening indulged in free screenings of the Barclays Premier League match between Chelsea and Hull City at community clubs across Singapore.
At Yio Chu Kang Community Club, some 20 fans turned up at the beginning of the match at 8.45pm.
More spectators gradually streamed in as the match progressed.
It seemed residents simply relished the chance to catch the game without having to pay anything.
One of the spectators said: "It's because of the ridiculously expensive prices that one has to pay to watch English football these days and I also have a bit of time to kill."
The screening of the match was opportunity to build communal bonds through the platform of shared spectatorship.
Previously, World Cup football matches were also publicly screened in the heartlands, as was the National Day Parade.
