Singaporeans used to be crazy about soccer.
Okay, correction. Singaporeans are still crazy about soccer. However, last time when policemen were still wearing shorts, we were crazy about local soccer. I mean, have you seen Fandi Ahmad scoring goals like a boss?
Now, we’re just crazy about the English Premier League and other overseas leagues.
I’ve even heard people joked that the Singapore Premier League (read: Premier = the best) is only number one because there are no other leagues here in Singapore.
Well, if you have a die-hard love for soccer and feel that you can do way better than what the FAS is doing right now, here’s your chance to do so.
Health Promotion Board’s Seed Funding For Fitness Interest Groups
The Health Promotion Board (HPB) in Singapore exist for only one reason: to ensure that Singaporeans stay healthy and fit.
And they’ve been doing a great job so far.
I’m pretty sure you’ve seen Zumba workouts at shopping malls or joined the National Steps challenge which allows you to walk and get rewards.
But did you know that HPB also gives you money to start fitness groups?
And soccer is classified as a team sport under HPB’s definition of a fitness group.
So if you and your buddies meet up for a game of soccer or three every Sunday since you were 15, you might want to see if you can start up your own amateur soccer team.
