●Collaboration with Yuhua Community Sports Club (CSC)
On 2 April 2013, we collaborated with Yuhua CSC and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with them. The MOU was signed by Mr Daisuke Korenaga, Chairman of Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) and Mr Lim Chock Sing, Chairman of Yuhua CSC. Ms Grace Fu, Minister, Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for the Environment and Water Resources, Second Minister for Foreign Affairs and Adviser to Yuhua Grassroots Organisations was present to witness the signing of the MOU. As part of the MOU, we will donate S$1.00 for every fan who attends our home matches at the Jurong East Stadium during the 2013 Singapore League matches. The aggregate donation sum will be donated to beneficiaries identified by Yuhua CSC at the end of the season. In total, a sum of S$19386 was raised.
A similar MOU was signed again for 2014 and 2015.
●Yuhua Albirex Football Academy (YAFA)
As a way to reach out to the local community, Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) provided coaches to support the running of the inaugural Yuhua Children Football Clinic (YCFC) for 32 Sundays in 2013. Participants of the clinic included boys and girls aged between 5 and 7. More than 90 participants took part in the programme.
With the success of the YCFC, both Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) and Yuhua Community Sports Club (CSC) decided to collaborate to form the Yuhua Albirex Football Academy (YAFA) in 2014. One reason to form the academy was to provide children with the platform to develop their football skills and learn life values through football. Another reason was to ensure that children in the YCFC programme could continue learning the game despite turning older than 7. The age group of participants expanded to include boys and girls from 8 to 13 years old.
Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) hopes that this programme would enable us to establish a good relationship through football with Yuhua and the local community.
