Thank you for your warm support.
Albirex Niigata Football Club (Singapore) has raised $924 for Chiam See Tong Sports Funds through ticket sales during Albirex’s home match against Hougang United on 13 July 2019 at Jurong East Stadium.
Comment from Daisuke Korenaga, Chairman, Albirex Niigata Football Club (Singapore)
Albirex acts as a bridge between Japan and Singapore through sporting activities, in particular through our professional football team.
It is our privilege that we are able to use our football activities to help under-resourced athletes in Singapore who do not get enough funding for training and representing Singapore in the world stage, such as Mr Eugene Png, who was part of Team Singapore in the 2019 World Para Swimming World Series held in May 2019 at the OCBC Aquatic Centre; and brothers Matthew and Matthias Yap, who have already won multiple gold medals at the Asian powerlifting meets and held several national records.
Our professional football team consists mainly of Japanese players who stepped out of Japan for the first time and play professional football overseas in Singapore. We encourage them to face the challenges in the world.
Similarly, we want to encourage Singaporeans to step out of Singapore and face the challenges in the world through sporting activities. The under-resourced athletes of the Chiam See Tong Sports Fund have put Singapore in the Asian and World Map. Their dreams and aspirations are congruent to our vision, and we are proud to play a part in helping them.
Comment from Ang Peng Siong, Chairman of the Chiam See Tong Sports Fund
We would like to thank Albirex Niigata Singapore for their support of the Chiam See Tong Sports Fund and our mission to assist under-resourced athletes in Singapore. We look forward to more such collaborations with the club down the line, and hope to work more closely with the club to support its corporate social responsibility initiatives.
