For The Record...
"In an interview with Yahoo! Singapore, Zainudin (Nordin, FAS President) reiterated that the S-league will not become a "poorer cousin" once the LionsXII start their Malaysia Cup campaign."

We are not attracting the right crowd yet?

Let's just face the stark fact and that is "We are not attracting the right crowd"..

Sad isn't it.. 10 years into the league establishment, the S.Leage has yet to penetrate into the hearts of the common folks other than the punters.

Before the legalized betting, gambling of the matches were always done at the terrance, on ad-hoc basis, where a spur of moment , kakis and strangers alike would place their bets and collected and distrbuted the earnings after the game.

So much so that, ask any of these "fans" to name a few players on the field, you are likely given this answer "err, dunno, that small/tall/short guy wearing red/blue/green or whatsoever colour"

Was at the game between Balestier and Sengkang just now, after Sengkang had let in their sixth goal of the night, a guy behind me commented, "That tall guy (Steven Macdonald) cannot make it lah!!"


Thought he is one of those "rare breed", until he mentioned the odds given by the Singapore Pools on this match.

And his parting shot is probably the most common you get to hear
"Which team you bet and how much you bet??"

  1. Maybe it could be due to the marketing team's fault? Why are there no reports on S-league on both the 2 main newspapers in Singapore? How then can people realise that there is actually a league in Singapore?
