The following are some of the key points mentioned in the 39th Football Association of Singapore (FAS) Annual Congress.

A) From the 2022 Singapore Premier League (SPL) season onwards, the fielding of one Under-23 (U23) player instead of three in the starting lineup.

B) No limit on the number of U23 players registered in each SPL squad.

C) Young elite leagues to resume in the 2022 season (subject to prevailing circumstances).

D) FAS will "put in a strong and determined bid to host" AFF Suzuki Cup.

I thought the biggest takeaways would be points (A) and (C), especially for the former that head coaches would not find themselves in a constrained situation and give more flexibility to field their ideal XI.

The move to revive the youth elite leagues is a good one and hopefully, we can see a conduit in place to allow proper progression than having a fast-tracking mode that saw more teenage players in a top-tier league in this season which is criticized by many in the fraternity as a devaluating move to the SPL.

It is also important to ensure the competitiveness of these youth leagues whose flaws were well-documented in the past and hopefully if the situation permits, the revival of the amateur and corporate leagues too.

These are my thoughts ...

Till then, stay safe and healthy and don't gather in numbers

Thank you for your support.
