Singapore Cup 2013 Draw

The Singapore Cup has a slight change this season. Now a draw will be made ahead of each round. Before the draw for the whole comp was done in advance and a team would know its path to Jalan Besar and the final.

Again there are four invited foreign teams and while there is a Cambodian entrant again it isn't Phnom Penh Crown. Instead we have Boung Ket Rubber Field, cue chants of "Come on you Rubbers', the Lao Police Club who come from, um, Laos and two representatives from the Philippines Loyola Meralco Sparks and Global.

They join Singapore's resident foreign teams, Albirex Niigata, DPMM Brunei and Harimau Muda and the other nine domestic clubs in a mini ASEAN League!

We have the draw that was made yesterday but no dates yet!

Woodlands Wellington v Geylang International
Hougang United v Tampines Rovers
Albirex Niigata v Home United
Young Lions v Balestier Khalsa
Loyola Meralco Sparks v Harimau Muda
Tanjong Pagar v Buong Ket
Lao Police Club v DPMM
Warriors v Global

I would still like to see NFL clubs added but that doesn't seem to be part of the strategic plan at the moment. Two Philippines clubs because last season the local community came out in numbers to support their compatriots. Following that logic surely an Indonesian team? Imagine if a Persebaya, Persib, Arema or Persija entering?!
