Football is without doubt the most popular sport with men and women alike in Singapore. Thanks to the support of the association, which was founded in 1892, Singapore's sportsmen and women enjoy strong competition, which has resulted in some notable success stories, such as Singapore's triumph in the Tiger Cup, one of Asia's most popular events. In 2003, Singapore played host to a women's football tournament that attracted a number of the world's top teams. This was just one of the association's many activities in an attempt to keep pace with the continent's giants. The association's determination is certainly paying off, as the Singapore men's team is currently 106th in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, with the women 87th. These rankings are positive signs for Singapore and an accurate reflection of the association's "Goal 2010" endeavours, which are geared towards qualification for the World Cup finals in Africa in 2010.
The Football Association of Singapore was in urgent need of an international-size artificial turf pitch, which was to be laid on a site adjacent to the Jalan Besar Stadium, as the old national stadium was to give way to a modern sports complex due for completion by 2012. The project was approved by the Goal Bureau on 4 February 2008 and was inaugurated on 14 August 2009.
AFC World Cup Qualifiers
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is the governing body of association football in Asia. It has 46 member countries, mostly located on the Asian continent. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia, transcontinental nations such as Turkey and Russia are instead in the UEFA, whereas countries such as Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Israel are entirely in Asia (Central or Western Asia) and still members of the UEFA. On the other hand, Australia, formerly in the OFC, has been in the AFC since 2006, in the same way as the Oceanian nations of Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, which are also members of AFC.
