FAS’ response to supporting Song Ui-young’s PR application

The ‘Florence Nightingale’ of local football, Nurhafizah Abu Sujad broadens the reach of her quest to keep footballers in top condition, joining the Lion City Sailors while retaining her role as National Teams Head Physiotherapist.


“As announced at the recent FAS Congress, the FAS is looking into utilising the Foreign Talent Scheme to further strengthen our National Team for the future.


“Song Ui-young is a motivated individual with a strong desire to perform at the highest level, and has shown great commitment to local football since he came to Singapore in 2012 at the age of 18. Apart from his stellar performances at local and regional competitions in the past seasons, Song has also been actively involved in Home United FC’s grassroots outreach efforts. Despite overseas offers, Song has decided to remain with the Protectors, signalling his desire and intention to make Singapore his home.


“In view of the above considerations, we are in discussions to put forth our support for Song’s application under the Scheme.”
