EPL Masters Football Cup makes Singapore debut

The tournament involving former EPL stars will be played out in Singapore for the first time on October 14 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium

The Lion City is set to come to life on October 14 2012 as the EPL Masters Football Cup is making its debut at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Masters Football Cup is an intense action packed 6-a-side, 3 hour indoor tournament, where 4 teams of legendary stars from the EPL and Singapore battle it out for the inaugural EPL Masters Football Singapore Cup.

Football Focus Asia’s CEO Robert Teasdale revealed that the tournament is not a one-off event and indicated long term plans and benefits for Singapore football with the arrival of the EPL Master this year.

“We are building the foundation for this year as we intend to make it a bigger event in Singapore's footballing calendar than it is at the moment.

“We also intend to roll out few more initiatives in the next few years and what better way to contribute to the grassroots development in Singapore than with the legends themselves who are top class players in their respective clubs.

“The difference between Singapore and the other countries where the Masters is being held, is that there is a plan here to make football work in future with the facilities and the support given by the government with the new sports hub and we are looking forward to be a part of it.”

Fans can look forward to seeing the likes of Liverpool FC’s Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Patrik Berger and Stephan Henchoz rekindle old rivalries against Manchester United’s top goal scorer Andy Cole, Ronnie Johnsen and Lee Sharpe.

The EPL All-Stars team will feature a deadly mix of players such as World Cup and Euro Winner, Frank Lebouf and Dutch giant Pierre Van Hooijdonk, and are set to take on the challenge from Singapore’s own footballing son, Fandi Ahmad, who will be teaming up with old teammates such as Abbas Saad and David Lee from the legendary Malaysia Cup winning squad of 1994.
