FAS’ response to media query regarding engagement with private football academies


“While the private academies do not come under the purview of the Football Association of Singapore (FAS), we have established a good working relationship with some of these academies such as JSSL Arsenal and St Michael’s Soccer Academy.


“Private academies, ActiveSG Football Academy, schools and clubs are all integral components of the Singapore football eco-system. We recognise that these different parts contribute to a vital part to the development of players and cater to various sectors of our demographic to give everyone an opportunity to learn, development and play football. As the FAS, we are cognizant of the roles these parts play, and how they fit into the overall development system for players from grassroots to elite level.”
