Tampines Stadium, Singapore

Bog standard Singapore sports stadium complete with running track and temporary stands down one side of the field and one covered main stand.

Short walk, perhaps 15 minutes if you get lost in one of the malls, from Tampines MRT, like other Singapore stadia it suffers from over officious stewards who make you feel as welcome as Porky Pig and his family at a Bar Mitzpha.

Larkin Stadium, Johore Bahru

A comfortable trip across the cause if you're in Singapore, Larkin Stadium is just a 10 minute walk from Larkin Bus Station which is the end of the line for buses from Singapore. Come out the bus terminal, turn right at the crossroads and follow the floddlights keeping the Shell petrol station on your right.

By the way, with the end of British colonialism on some maps this stadium is now referred to by its new name which is such a mouthful I can't remember.

This place looks and feels like a football stadium, shame about the running track and meagre 150 fans who turned up when I did.

Don't expect much n the way of facilities once you're inside
