sport singapore (black box) auditorium

address by mr lim kia tong,

president, football association of singapore


1. A very good afternoon friends from the media.

 

2. We have made history in the first FIFA-sanctioned and monitored FAS landmark election.

 

3. First of all, I have voiced my appreciation to the voters and I would like to thank the voters again for having given us their resounding endorsement. For those who did not support us this time, we will definitely work hard to win back their support.

 

4. To say that we have mixed feelings about this victory is indeed an understatement. Today was not a victory for Team LKT, today was a victory for Singapore football.

 

5. Today, the voters sent out a clear and resounding statement about the kind of value it embraces. This will be the foundation that our future will be built on. This was the mandate that will bring sweeping changes to Singapore football.

 

6. The last few weeks have been incredibly hard. But the road ahead will be even harder. The real work starts now, and my team and I promise that we will work tirelessly to heal Singapore football and to do our best to bring back the glory days.

 

7. We will start work immediately by forming the standing committees as well as the necessary taskforces. We will definitely be inclusive and gather views and ask for volunteers to step forward in helping us to march forward.

 

8. Of course I know that these are just mere words. However, history will be the ultimate judge as to what happens from tomorrow onwards.

 

9. Change will not happen overnight and we certainly need to come together to make football our number one sport again.

 

10. So with that I call upon everyone in the football community – the players, the coaches, the administrators, the volunteers, the media, the fans and even our opponents today – to set aside our past differences and to work together for the good of Singapore football.

 

11. And we will, of course, take all of us together to rejuvenate football for our country.


Thank you.
