FAS’ Reply To Media Query Regarding Merger Of WWFC And HGFC
‚ÄúMaking the S.League more competitive, exciting and sustainable are some of our key objectives. Clubs also need to be financially stronger in order to be able to raise the standard and quality of play, through better foreign signings and by offering more attractive and viable football career options for local players, as well as overcome rising operating costs and inflation.
‚ÄúThe merger idea, which was to enable clubs to be financially stronger through combined resources and funds, was, unfortunately, not feasible for implementation at this juncture. Notwithstanding this, we will continue to explore other ways to strengthen the existing clubs with the long-term objective of a viable and sustainable S.League.
‚ÄúWWFC will continue as a football club under the purview of S.League, engage in community football activities and pay off its debts, similar to all other clubs sitting out.‚Äù
