S’poreans totally believe S.League generates $200 million a year for economy

Posted on 08 October 2013

Must be the multiplier effect at work, they say.


Singaporeans from all walks of life with varying experience in handling balls are absolutely convinced.

They are totally buying into the claim by Zainudin Noordin, the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) President, that the S.League contributes $200 million annually to Singapore’s economy.

Zainudin Noordin made this claim in a media interview with Mediacorp’s Suria channel, where he noted that the S.League was of great importance.

Tua Pao Xian, a Singaporean, said he has no doubt that a 12-team S.League with matches played in front of a few dozen people each time can generate hundreds of millions of dollars a year: “Ya, I’m sure the multiplier effect is at work here.”

“Someone watching the S.League must have bet on soccer, then go to temple and pray for good fortune.”

“So, he burn paper money to his ancestors, who use it in the other realm.”

“As each note is $100 million, the ancestor uses two notes, so that’s why got $200 million.”
