FAS’ response to media queries regarding MOE’s announcement to review National School Games


“The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) is pleased to be involved in discussions with the Ministry of Education (MOE) on the review of the competition structure for the Junior Division Football Championship. Through the review, Singapore’s young footballers will have more playing opportunities, which will enhance their development of fundamental football skills.


“One of the changes that will be implemented in 2018 is the 8-a-side match format as opposed to the 9-a-side or 11-a-side formats in previous years. This ensures that the size of the game is suited for the capacities of the children.


“We will continue to work closely with MOE to ensure that Singapore’s young footballers enjoy a positive and meaningful sporting experience from a young age.”


– FAS Technical Director Michel Sablon
