TIONG BAHRU HAD $37M REVENUE LAST YEAR AS FAS STRUGGLE TO GENERATE INCOME

The recent FAS saga have shown one thing, that nobody actually cares for the football in Singapore. It's all about the money and power, and that's why our local football will never go far. Forget about reaching the standards of the Japanese league, our own S-League could not even match up to Indonesia's, and they had their league suspended by FIFA for one whole year last year!

But out of this saga, we now have the surprising news that the Tiong Bahru Football Club had actually amassed a revenue of $36.8m last year!The FAS own budget for the whole of last year was $35.8m. And it was not only last year that Tiong Bahru FC had amassed millions via their jackpot machines. They had made between $11m - $36m in the years since 2011. They are a far richer club than the FAS and the professional S-League clubs!

FAS TO EXPLAIN WHERE DONATION MONEY WENT TO

SportSG has taken the FAS to task, and asked the FAS to submit a full report on how the huge donations was managed and used by the FAS. The allegations came to light when Hougang United chairman Bill Ng, who is leading a team to contest the April 29 FAS elections, alleged that he donated a sum of $850,000 to the FAS, but was not sure how the money was spent. The FAS then clarified that only $715,000 worth of donations it received could be linked with Ng.

MINISTER TELLS FAS TO FOCUS ON FOOTBALL, NOT POWER FOR THEIR ELECTIONS. SO FUNNY!

The government takes a very hands-on approach when it comes to FAS. In fact, preciously, all FAS presidents were specially appointed by the government, and not elected like they will do this year. As usual, government wants control over everything. Minister Fu said that the focus in the elections would be to improve Singapore's no 1 sport. This election is supposed to be all about football, making it a priority, and not about who gets the power to run the sports body.

So rich, coming from the Minister. After all, during the General elections, didn't you all promise that this is all about making Singaporean's life better? So, after you win, how did you make Singaporeans life better? By increasing almost everything, like water, S&CC, transport fares? Talk is cheap.

Yet, the top FAS management people responsible for the destruction of Singapore football have been handsomely paid to the tune of millions. How is it possible that the current president of the FAS, under whose charge S'pore football has seen 8 years of horrific decline, is still able to hold on to his job?
