NSSL Lee Hsien Loong Challenge Trophy 2014

Michael Goh

The Sunny Sunday was an excellent time for football lovers as our athletes headed down to Toa Payoh HDB for a 4 vs 4 testimonial match against SengKang West Grassroot Soccer Academy.


This year, Special Olympics Singapore were privileged to be invited by Ang Mo Kio – Sengkang West Constituency to National Street Soccer League Grand Finals to showcase our athletes’ football skills to Prime Minister, Mr Lee Hsien Loong. The idea of our athletes playing before the kickoff of the grand finals is to promote social inclusion; showcasing their football skills to the other athletes. Football is a universal language; one shouldn’t undermine each other because of their differences. And our athletes proved this point by winning the opponent to a score of 3-1 in a 5 minute contest.


We would like to thanks Ang Mo Kio - Seng Kang West Grassroot, for inviting us for this event.
