History

Prior to 1996, local soccer competitions were not the main attraction for football fans in Singapore. Since 1921, Singapore had been entering a representative side (nicknamed the "Lions") in the Malaysia Cup, and later also in the Malaysian League. Along with the state side from Selangor, Singapore was one of the two dominant forces in the Malaysian soccer scene for over 70 years. Thousands of fans packed stadiums home and away to watch the Lions team take on the best Malaysian sides. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ... 1921 (MCMXXI) was a common year starting on Saturday (see link for calendar). ... The Malaysia Cup is a highly-prestigious annual soccer tournament in Malaysia. ... The Super League is the top flight of football in Malaysia . ... Selangor Football Team is a member team of the Malaysian football league. ...


In 1994, Singapore won the Malaysian League and Malaysia Cup double. But that was to be its last year in the Malaysian competitions. The initial push to leave came at the beginning of 1995 when there was a dispute between the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) and the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) over the FAM's desire to impose a levy on the gate receipts of Malaysian League and Cup matches played in Singapore. Rather than accept the levy, the FAS decided that the time was right to withdraw from the Malaysian competitions and focus on building up a professional domestic league. It was hoped that this move would facilitate a wider development of the game and help find places for the involvement of a burgeoning population of players and coaches. 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal by United Nations. ... 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) is the governing body of football in Singapore. ... The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) is the governing body for soccer in Malaysia, responsible for organising the Malaysian national football team and the major soccer tournaments within the country. ...


A task force was set up to develop plans for the new league, and Douglas Moore, who had been the coach of Singapore's 1994 Malaysian championship-winning side as well as the Singapore national football team, was brought in as the league's first Chief Executive. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...


The first S.League season was held in 1996. Eight teams were involved that year and the competition was split into two series. In each series, all eight teams played each other home and away. The table-topping teams from each of the two series then met each other in a season-ending play-off match to determine the champions. Geylang United won the first series and the Singapore Armed Forces Football Club (SAFFC) won the second. Geylang then beat SAFFC 2-1 in the final play-off to be crowned the first S.League champions. Geylang were captained in that first season by Singapore's best-known soccer star Fandi Ahmad (who also captained Singapore's last Malaysia Cup-winning side in 1994). The following year, Fandi moved to SAFFC and won the S.League title with them (and later went on to become their coach). Geylang United Football Club is a professional soccer club which plays in Singapores S.League. ... The Singapore Armed Forces Football Club (SAFFC) is a professional soccer club which plays in Singapores S.League. ... Fandi Ahmad (born 29 May 1962) is a former professional soccer player from Singapore. ...


The format of two series and a season-ending play-off was replaced in 1997 by a more traditional league format. Since its first season, the S.League has grown to involve as many as 12 teams. 11 teams are competing in the 2006 competition. There is no promotion and relegation system. The clubs involved are chosen by the FAS, based on their past record and quality of management and organisation. In 2003, in an attempt to generate more excitement, penalty shoot-outs were held after all drawn games, with the winners taking 2 league points and the losers 1 point. This idea was dropped in 2004. 1997 (MCMXCVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2006 (MMVI) is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


To help promote the development of top young players in Singapore, a team known as the Young Lions was introduced to the S.League in 2003, made-up largely of the members of the Singapore national under-23 team. The Young Lions team, which continues to be part of the S.League, is under the direct control of the FAS and its squad only includes players aged below 23. (Foreign players are normally only recriuted into the Young Lions squad if they could potentially change their nationality to Singaporean, and thus become eligible to play international football for Singapore at some point in the future.) Young Lions is a soccer club which plays in Singapores S.League. ...


Three non-Singaporean teams have been involved in the S.League – Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) (a satellite team of a top-level professional club in Japan), Sinchi FC (a team made up of players from China), and Sporting Afrique FC (which will be made up of players of African origin).

League football in Singapore before the S.League

Prior to the formation of the S.League, the top league competitions in Singapore were the FAS Premier League (from 1988-1995) and National Football League (from 1975-1987). These was largely semi-professional leagues and, in the eyes of most fans at the time, were very much second-fiddle to Singapore's participation in the Malaysia Cup and Malaysian League. The Singapore league season was usually held fairly early the year during the pre-S.League era, and many of the Singapore players in the Malaysian competitions also played for clubs in the local Singapore league. The dominant team in Singapore in the pre-S.League period was Geylang International (now Geylang United). The Football Association of Singapore Premier League was the top semi-professional soccer league in Singapore from 1988 to 1995, before the formation of the S.League. ... 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1975 (MCMLXXV) was a common year starting on Wednesday. ... 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


In 1994, in a bid to add some spice to the Premier League and generate increased fan interest, two teams from Australia were invited to participate – the Perth Kangaroos and the Darwin Cubs. However after confirming the participation of the two Australian clubs, the Football Association of Singapore then decided to withdraw all the players in its Malaysian League team from participating in the local league that year. This considerably weakened the strength of the local clubs. Perth Kangaroos won the Premier League that year without losing a game, and the Darwin Cubs finished second. The experiment did not succeed in blostering fan interest; although it perhaps paved the way for the more successful introduction of foreign teams like Albirex Niigata of Japan and Sinchi of China into the S.League a few years later. Perth Kangaroos International Football Club is a now-defunct soccer club from Perth, Australia. ... Darwin Cubs is a now-defunct soccer club from Darwin, Australia. ...


In 1995, the Football Association of Singapore unexpectedly decided to withdraw from the Malaysian League. Most of the players on the Singapore national football team had been due to play in the Malaysian League team. It was therefore decided that the national team should play in the 1995 Premier League competition as a stop-gap measure until the establishment of the S.League the following year. Not surprisingly, the national team finished the season undefeated against the club sides and comfortably won the Premier League that year.


The Premier League was disbanded when the S.League was formed in 1996, but the National Football League continues to exist as a lower tier league in the Singapore football structure.
