New Decision On Age-Requirement Rules For Clubs


SINGAPORE, 22 NOVEMBER 2014: Following discussions, the S.League and the Club Chairmen have decided not to implement the new rules of maximum and minimum number of players for the various age categories. The decision was taken after careful consideration of the appeals made by some affected players. 

The S.League’s goal is to always improve the standard of football to make it more exciting and competitive. The clubs must also be able to compete at the regional level. To achieve these goals, there will be a continued and greater emphasis on performance, a high level of fitness, and the ability to play at a high intensity for all players in the S.League.

The list of the players released by clubs was issued on Monday (17 Nov 2014). The clubs have until 13 Feb 2015 to submit the first registration of players for the new season. The registration window closes on 27 Mar 2015.

Following the consolidation of the S.League to 10 clubs next season, the S.League has also started to help players looking to move on to new careers by linking them up with potential employers. Next season, to further assist players make career transitions in future, a study subsidy scheme will also be proposed for players who want to further their studies at approved institutions.
