FAS’ reply to media query on Singapore businessman Peter Lim’s purchase of Valencia
“The Footballl Association of Singapore (FAS) congratulates Mr Peter Lim on becoming the new owner of Valencia CF.
As a forward-looking organisation, the FAS is always looking for opportunities for collaborations with various stakeholders to develop Singapore football and help our players to reach their fullest potential.
For example, we already have in place Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with leading football institutions such as the French Football Federation (FFF), and the Japan Professional League.
Mr Lim has shown that he is passionate about Singapore sport by setting up the Singapore Olympic Foundation’s Peter Lim Scholarship for young budding talented sportsmen, and by facilitating the opportunity for Hariss Harun to play professionally in Portugal.
Naturally, we would relish the opportunity to meet with Mr Lim or his representatives in the near future to discuss possible collaborations to achieve our objectives for Singapore football.
We wish Mr Lim every success with Valencia CF.”
