The Philippine Football Federation joins the world football community in mourning the loss of Football Association of Singapore (FAS) President Lim Kia Tong, who passed away last Wednesday, 14 September 2022.
Mr. Lim was a dedicated football official, having been elected as FAS president since 2017 until his passing.
He also served as deputy chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee as well as chairman of the AFC Disciplinary Committee.
“Lim Kia Tong was a good man,” said PFF president Mariano Araneta, Jr. “He was a brilliant but humble lawyer. We will miss his wisdom and humor.”
“We lost a staunch and hardworking football official, a fair-minded intellectual, a solid proponent of good governance, and a person whose advice and guidance in football matters were sought after in Mr. Lim Kia Tong.” added PFF general secretary Atty. Edwin Gastanes.
