July 2 to become public holiday, after LionsXII title win that day

Posted on 03 July 2013

FAS will honour all Singaporeans for being united without Tony Tan’s help.

LionsXII-win

The Singapore Football Association is looking to honour the LionsXII’s historic win with a celebration that will involve “all Singaporeans”.

The FAS President, Zainudin Nordin said the historic Malaysian Super League title win is due to Singaporeans being united: “The fans have been fantastic and we want to reward the fans together with our players.”

And this was achieved despite Tony Tan not being involved, although he explicitly said he would unite Singaporeans when he campaigned for presidency in 2011.

The rumour mills have been grinding at full steam with unnamed sources saying July 2 will be scheduled as an annual public holiday, as the LionsXII won the title on that day.

However, not all fans will be satisfied.

Boh Zho Peng, a local soccer fan, said: “How to honour the local soccer fans? Maybe Zainudin Nordin can complete his National Service first.”
