SLeague confusion

The new SLeague season is due to commence on 18th February in what could be a vital year for football in the city state.

For once the national team are mounting a serious bid for World Cup qualification, they lost 2-0 to Oman in a friendly after beating Kuwait by the same score, as they prepare for their first match with Saudi Arabia.

Domestically after an exciting three way race in 2007 Singapore Armed Forces ended up with a League and Cup double while Woodlands Wellington won the League Cup.

But with just a few weeks till the new season all is not rosy.

With Liaoning Guangyuan FC , one of three guest foreign teams in the league under investigation for alleged match fixing the League are busy scurrying round looking for a new team to replace them and keep the number at 12. A couple of foreign teams as well as one local team are under consideration.

With no one sure yet of who will be competing in the League there can be no fixtures released. The SLeague hope everything will be resolved this week.

As with last season I will be following the SLeague, giving regular updates here as well as getting to a few games...if the wife allows!


Just drop me an email when you are coming over to Singapore (if the wife given her blessing..hehehe)
