FAS’ Reply To Forum Letter Dated 23 January, titled “Reduce Foreign Player Quota in S.League”


We refer to Mr Ivan Goh’s letter “Reduce Foreign Player Quota in S.League” (TODAY, 23 January 2015).

We thank Mr Goh for his suggestions, and would also like to assure him that our aim is always to strive to maintain a good balance between grooming and developing local players, and creating added excitement to the S.League by allowing clubs to sign good quality foreign players.

Mr Goh’s suggestion to reduce the number of foreign players in the clubs is one we will certainly look into in our ongoing efforts to improve the S.League. 

Our clubs are also constantly engaging their grassroots and community with outreach activities so that they can establish closer ties with the residents and schools in their immediate vicinity and draw more fans to their home matches.

We thank Mr Goh for his support of local football, and welcome his continued feedback to improve the local game.
