“We are working closely with Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) and Sport Singapore (SportSG) on our selection for the 2018 Asian Games. The Asian Games is important in the lead-up to the 2019 Southeast Asian Games and the 2020 Asian Football Confederation Under-23 Championship, which serves as the qualifier for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Playing top quality opponents such as those in the Asian Games is key for the team to further enhance its competitiveness and development.

 

“We will continue our discussions with SNOC and SportSG for our appeal.”

 

– Head, National Teams Management Mr Eric Ong
