AFF Suzuki Cup: Buy bundle tickets, enjoy TNP on-the-go

When popular teams like Juventus Football Club played friendly matches at the National Stadium recently, fans cried foul at the price of tickets.

But they are in for a treat at the upcoming ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup.

The New Paper and the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) are teaming up to reward Lions' fans for their support and loyalty.

Those who purchase any one of four Group Stage Packages will be entitled to a subscription of TNP's online and mobile platforms.

Singapore will play against Thailand on Nov 23, Myanmar on Nov 26 and Malaysia on Nov 29.

The packages will enable fans to watch all three matches at the National Stadium.

Those who purchase Group Stage Packages for Cat 1 ($98) and Cat 2 ($78) will receive a three-month subscription, while Cat 3 ($58) and Cat 4 ($38) buyers receive a one-month subscription.

Loyal supporters

Singapore is co-hosting the football championship with Vietnam. The competition will run from Nov 23 to Dec 20.

Said The New Paper editor Dominic Nathan: "We wanted to find a way to give more value to fans who are loyal supporters of Singapore football.

"And what better way than to provide them with a digital subscription as long as they are ready to roar the Lions victory in all three group matches."

Those who purchase the bundle tickets can redeem their TNP digital access at FAS merchandise booths located at the stadium on match days.

The deal has struck a chord with Lions fans like Mr Deepanraj Ganesan.

Said the 20-year-old student: "It's an attractive deal for sports fans because it offers so much more than just a chance to watch the action live.

"I will be able to supplement that with previews, reviews and news that I can get from TNP, via the subscription.

"Let's just say that I've got all bases covered for the AFF Suzuki Cup."

Singapore has won the regional biennial tournament four times (1998, 2004, 2007, 2012). The nation is the defending champion since beating Thailand two years ago.

It is also the first time since 2007 that the Singapore is hosting the competition, and FAS is looking forward to welcoming fans to the Lions' new den.

Tickets prices are been set at affordable levels, with the cheapest single match ticket going at only $18.

The FAS will also be offering a special 15 per cent discount to all Singapore fans, as well as a 10 per cent early-bird discount, until Nov 20.

"It is a privilege and honour to co-host for this tournament and the ticket prices have been made affordable so that all of us can come together to celebrate the return of the Lions to the National Stadium," said FAS president Zainudin Nordin.

"Let's make the stadium reverberate with the Kallang Roar once again."

Maid gets 4 months jail for ill-treating boy, 2

A 24-year-old maid was sentenced to four months' jail for ill-treating a two-year-old boy.

The Indonesian woman, Bahija Tunnisa, was alone at home with the boy and his four-year-old brother, when she received a call from her employer on June 26.

She was told to get the boys ready for an outing.

When the younger boy refused to listen to Bahija's instructions, she snapped.

She got hold of a plastic Lego container cover and hit the two-year-old repeatedly on his body and face. She had also used a T-shirt to whack the boy's torso.

Yesterday, the boy's mother and grandmother told The New Paper that the boy was traumatised in addition to suffering physical injuries.

Court order against Sim Lim shop

Singapore Tourism Board applied for injunction against Sim Lim shop Cyber Mastero, after complaints against its trade practices.

The High Court of Singapore has granted a permanent injunction against an electronics wholesale company, Cyber Maestro Pte Ltd, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) said yesterday.

The injunction restrains the company and its employees and agents from engaging in several unfair practices, under the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act. STB had applied for the injunction in response to complaints against the company's trade practices.

The complaints against Cyber Maestro included overcharging, exerting undue pressure to enter into a transaction and misleading consumers about prices and availability of goods.

The company continued with these practices despite warnings from the Consumers Association of Singapore (Case), and STB's requests.

Case listed Cyber Maestro among the shops in Sim Lim Square with the most consumer complaints from July to September this year. The store at #02-77 had seven complaints against it.

STB encourages consumers to report unfair practices, saying it takes a "serious view of errant retailers who besmirch the reputation of Singapore as a premier tourist destination".

Consumers should also protect their interests by researching the product, comparing prices, clarifying return policies, checking receipts or invoices for accuracy and verifying coverage of warranties, STB said.
