SAFFC Name Change

Jakarta Casual at related • 1 view
One of the proudest names in Singapore football is no more.

Singapore Armed Forces have changed their name to The Warriors.

Um, ok. Never been a big fan of clubs named like Armed Forces, ATM, Siam Navy etc but The Warriors? Sounds like a cheesy 70's gang flick.

They have also appointed some retired soldier as Adviser what ever that means.

Thai Port trialist Masahiro signs for Bangkok Utd

Thai Port Football Club at related • 0 views
Siam Sport are reporting that Thai Port trialist, Masahiro Fukasawa (on the right of the pic below), has signed for TPL rivals Bangkok United. The 32 year old Japanese player had spent a couple of weeks on trial at PAT Stadium, and even made a couple of appearances for Port in pre-season friendlies.

It is unclear if Thai Port chose not to pursue their interest in the player, or whether he himself decided that a move to the Thai-Japanese Stadium would be a better option for his career.

I must admit to being quite excited about the new season in Singapore which began last night. Not because of the new foreign teams which fill me with as much excitement as a trip to the dentist, but rather among the more established clubs.

SIngapore Armed Forces of course have dominated the title over the last few seasons and will be strong favourites in the new campaign.

SLeague 2010 - How to support your local team

Jakarta Casual at related • 1 view
The SLeague begins in about 12 days time, no fixture list yet, so I thought I'd scour some of the teams websites and find out just what they are doing to entice supporters.

Albirex Niigata have one of the better sites and club shops in the SLeague if somewhat overpriced. Adults can purchase season tickets at a cost of $40 (all prices in Singapore dollars obviously) which is pretty good value when you consider match tickets cost $6 a game (all prices for adults).
