FAS Vice President Edwin Tong describes the 2034 World Cup as a "realistic" target for Singapore football: That's 15 years in the future. August 18, 2019, 07:12 PM|Belmont Lay Events Law Awareness Week 2020 will take place from October 5th through November 13th, 2020. Singapore, which is currently placed 162 in the FIFA global rankings, wishes to qualify for the 2034 World Cup. The last time they played England, in 1972, they lost 4-1. England has since become one of the world's most popular countries with an excellent football tradition.
Singapore has never been able to advance beyond the group stage of a major tournament. They were defeated by South Korea in the first round of the 2002 World Cup after winning all their matches up to that point. Before then, they had reached the quarterfinals of the 1986 World Cup without losing a game.
In addition to the English league, Singapore's top soccer league is known as S.League. The season consists of 26 games, with each team playing every other team twice. The champion is determined by a series of tiebreakers, with the highest number of points obtained at the end of the season being the winner. As of 2019, the current champions are Young Lions FC who have won the title for the third year in a row. Prior to this, the last time the Lions FC failed to win the championship was in 2011 when they came second. The previous two seasons they had won the title without having to go to a playoff match.

The World Cup in 2022 is exactly four years away. Here's all you need to know about Qatar's showcase... Where will the 2022 World Cup be held? For the first time, the World Cup will be held in the Middle East. Qatar, a Persian Gulf peninsula, will host the event in 2022 after controversially securing the right in 2010. The decision was made by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SCDL), which is the government body responsible for selecting the host country. Qatar won the bid over other candidates Egypt and Indonesia. Soccer's governing body, FIFA, had no role in the selection process.
Why did the previous host country, Qatar, lose its tournament? In November 2011, FIFA suspended football-playing nations Zambia, Zimbabwe, Sudan, South Africa, and Ivory Coast from all international competition due to a lack of funding. As well, there were concerns about Qatari security solutions after the country announced it would hire thousands of guards to protect stadiums during the tournament.
Qatar has been trying to improve its image through sports since then, and the suspension was one of many factors used by SCDL in deciding to select Qatar. The committee cited the availability of land and facilities needed for training as reasons behind its choice.
Who are some famous Qatari athletes? Qatari athletes have proved themselves on the world stage, with several winning gold medals at the Olympics and World Championships. Doha has also produced successful soccer players, most notably Lionel Messi and Franck Ribéry.
