World Cup matches to be shown at 10 more CCs

The People's Association has added another 10 Community Clubs for the screening of World Cup 2014 matches, including Anchorvale, Potong Pasir, and Punggol 21.

SINGAPORE: Ten more Community Clubs have been added as World Cup screening sites in response to residents' requests, the People's Association (PA) said on Friday (June 6).

In a statement, the PA said the 10 CCs are Anchorvale, Henderson, Punggol 21, Pasir Ris East, Zhenghua, Canberra, Potong Pasir, Kampong Ubi, Bukit Batok East and West Coast. This brings the total number of CCs screening the matches 'live' to 40, from the original 30, it added.

All 40 CCs will screen the opening match involving host Brazil and Croatia on June 13, and the updated screening schedules are available on the PA website. Those keen to catch the matches at the CCs are advised to check the weekly schedules regularly for updates, according to the statement.

The PA said most of the matches will be screened indoors, in multi-purpose halls, auditoriums, or theatrettes. Grassroots volunteers organising the screenings will also take steps to minimise noise levels so that other residents are not inconvenienced, it added.
