FAS chief Lim: Foundations in place for Singapore football excellence

Football Association of Singapore president Lim Kia Tong believes the past year has seen foundations laid for the organisation to go on to achieve “football excellence”.

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Lim, who took over at the helm last April, was speaking as the FAS held its 36th Annual Congress on Saturday morning.

Having touched on key highlights from the past year, Lim went on to share his optimism for the future in his conclusion.

“In the past year, we have laid the foundations to achieve our shared goal for Singapore football,” said the FAS chief.

“And in the coming year we will be fine-tuning our plans to ensure that we can make a positive difference in Singapore football and together, achieve our common goal of football excellence.”

One of the major initiatives introduced after Lim and his team were elected as the FAS’ new leaders last year was the revamp of Singapore’s top-tier competition, which was rebranded from the S.League to the Singapore Premier League.

“Six months into the SPL, we are pleased to see that some of the changes we implemented have borne fruit.”
