FAS’ Reply to Media Query Regarding SEA Games 2017


“As a forward-looking organisation, the Football Association of Singapore has been prepared for this change by putting together a mainly Under-21 squad for the Garena Young Lions (GYL) to compete in the S.League this year. We wish to reiterate that all eligible young players, and not just players from the GYL, will be considered for the SEA Games squad next year. Coach Patrick Hesse‚Äôs job as Head Coach of GYL is to focus on the development of the players in the GYL squad, instead of the SEA Games squad. Richard Tardy, Head Coach of National Youth Teams, will take charge of the U21 National Team for now.”

“We are finalising the arrangements to organise friendly matches for the U21 National Team, and we will announce when details are confirmed.”
