Football builds character.
As the only professional football team playing outside of Japan, we do not want to limit ourselves to just kicking the ball. We want to develop our next generation to face the challenges of the world by building a strong character.
The world is evolving and people become more globalised. Japan will not be spared by this evolution and our people will have to come out of their comfort zone of their homes. This is not helped by Japan’s greying societyand a shrinking economy.
Our footballers can play a big part in telling our children that the challenges in the world are not to be afraid of. “Living overseas was tough, but it was rewarding.” A message we want to send to our children.
With this belief, our children would have less fear in venturing overseas, whether in football, other sports or in the business world.
This belief is our slogan, “The Reason”.
Chairman,Albirex Niigata Singapore FC
Football brings people together
Starting from the stadium, our supporters gather to cheer the team. The team makes a connection with the players through hardwork and commitment. Win or lose, the team and its supporters stay united.
Off the field, the team makes more effort to engage the community, through school outreach programs, community events, visits to hospitals and charity homes, garnering more support and developing the community spirit.
Language proves no barriers although our boys come from Japan. The team strives to build the communication bridge, using football as our tool, between Japan and Singapore, between the community / supporters and the team.
