“We have requested that Mr Lim continue in his role until 31 March 2017 to oversee the kick-off of the new league season and he has agreed to do so. The FAS Provisional Council will continue to work with our stakeholders and staff to further enhance the quality of our professional league as well as other aspects of Singapore Football.”
Following Lim's departure, Kok Wai Leong, S.League director of operations, will oversee the running of the league.
Lim, who was appointed S.League boss in January 2012, said: “After helming the S.League for the past five years, I have decided that it is the right time for me to pursue other interests and opportunities.
“It has been an exhilarating ride season after season and I would like to sincerely thank all the club chairmen and general managers, as well as the club staff, coaches and players for their great support.
“I have enjoyed working with the FAS Council and my dedicated colleagues at the S.League. I will definitely continue to support Singapore football and hope all stakeholders will do the same as well.”
