Olympic qualifiers to be played in UAE

The Khalifa Stadium in Al Ain, UAE, will be the neutral venue for both legs of the Yemen-Singapore qualifying match for the Olympic Football Tournament London 2012.

The opening leg will be played on 19 March and the return leg is scheduled for 21 March.

FIFA and AFC had jointly decided on 19 February to postpone the match after taking into consideration the situation in Yemen.

It was also decided that if the situation in Yemen did not clearly improve in the next days, the match would take place on neutral ground.
