  • Football Association of Singapore to invest S$5m in in-house production over five years
  • Investment follows media rights deals with Singtel, StarHub and Mediacorp
  • Association aiming to increase league’s television coverage and elevate overall profile
When the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) rebranded the Singapore Premier League (SPL) in 2018, it had two long-term ambitions: to increase the amount of coverage on linear television and to elevate the league’s overall profile. Four years later, the FAS is taking its next step towards realising those ambitions by investing $S5m ($3.6m/€3.5m) in in-house media production capabilities.

The investment is being made over five years, from 2022 to 2026. It is funding, among other things, more cameras, enhanced digital infrastructure and a new production hub at the country’s Jalan Besar Stadium.
