Double bill Saturday at Jalan Besar

Saturday, 26 March, will once again see Singapore football doing her part for the Japanese quake victims as reigning champions of the Great Eastern-Yeo’s S-League, Etoile FC, will face ASEAN champions Malaysia in a match to raise funds for the Japanese quake victims at the Jalan Besar stadium.

The match will be part of a double bill at Jalan Besar as the Courts Young Lions will be playing Albirex Niigata earlier in the evening at 5pm. Retail giants Courts and Vanda Sports Group, promoters of the Young Lions, hope to raise at least $40,000 for the Japanese relief efforts on Saturday.

As the sum will consist of gate receipts, cash and product donations from Courts and their retail partners, the visit of an almost full strength Malaysian national team that won the recent Suzuki Cup would definitely help attract more fans.

Targeting a turnout of at least 2,000 adult fans, Courts has also pledged to donate S$5 for each S$5 ticket sold.  Partners such as Acer and Demand Print have already pledged to donate S$7,500 each and with more donations coming in the form or products from companies such as Blackberry, Samsung, Brother and Toshiba, Courts chief executive Terry O'Connor said “Every bit counts and we hope the fans will come together on Saturday and show their support for the Courts Young Lions and in turn help the children in Japan.”
