S-League highlights Sunday football in new season

Singapore's S-League promises "more fun and exciting football" in the new season starting on Monday. The package includes new clubs, African-backed Sporting Afrique and the Japanese Albirex Niigata, a higher salary cap to attract quality players and the introduction of a Sunday match.

"One of the recommendations from fans is we should have a Sunday game. This is to provide them more time to come and enjoy the game. At the same time we also look at it, it gives the clubs the opportunity to engage and connect with the fans," Winston Lee, the league's new chief executive told Patwant Singh of Channel NewsAsia.

"It's also an opportunity that we can leverage on. Currently, we are working with some of our sponsors of the World Cup to provide S-League fans a chance to win tickets to the World Cup by attending matches or getting involved in some of their contests," he said.
