Club Licensing was first introduced to the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) in 2011 as a list of basic criteria for S.League clubs to participate in Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Club Competitions such as the AFC Champions League and AFC Cup.
With the assistance of the AFC, Club Licensing has since grown in stature and is now a critical component in the strategic plans of the FAS for our clubs’ constant development and improved governance.
With the rebranding of our professional football league from the ‘S.League’ to the ‘Singapore Premier League’, there is a much greater emphasis on Club Licensing as this key developmental tool has become a fundamental consideration in key decisions that our clubs make and how they operate to improve the standards with the football eco-system in Singapore.
As part of our continuous effort to raise the standards of football in Singapore and increase the level of professionalism, the FAS will embark on introducing Club Licensing to the National Football League (NFL) in 2019.
By implementing Club Licensing System, football clubs are benefitted by:
