Background

The Lion City Cup is one of the oldest and most prestigious youth football competitions in the world with the first edition organized 34 years ago. The tournament has unearthed Singapore football stars such as Fandi Ahmad, V. Sundramoorthy, Indra Sahdan and more recently Hariss Harun who is the captain of the current U-23 team. Since the inaugural tournament in 1977, involving U-16 teams, the Lion City Cup has become one of the premier youth tournaments in the region and has been credited for being the inspiration behind FIFA's introduction of the World Youth Under-17 and Under-19 Championships.
