SINGAPORE, 20 OCTOBER 2014: Two weeks ago, Football Association of Singapore (FAS) Vice-President Bernard Tan unveiled his plans to get more young children playing football to The Sunday Times and The New Paper.

An FAS survey of 100 primary schools found that 1 out of 2 kids want to play football, but only 5.9 per cent of boys, and 1.6 per cent of girls actually do so. With about 40,000 kids in every cohort, it means only 2,400 boys play football in school regularly.
