This December, the Lion City Sailors Training Centre at Mattar Road will play host to WomanGoal, the Spanish platform that looks to contribute to the global professionalisation of women’s football through the WomanGoal Global Draft.  

Singapore is the sixth of 17 stops of the Global Draft that will traverse five continents, with the Lion City its first foray into Asia. The Draft will go to Japan in 2024.

In addition to unearthing talent, the Draft aims to support the 360-degree development of women footballers in preparation for the challenges around professional football, including the creation of a personal brand.

At the Singapore Draft, five players will be pre-selected alongside an additional one or two who will all have the opportunity to represent Singapore in the final Draft that will take place in the Spanish capital of Madrid where leading Spanish clubs will have direct interaction with the players in question.

Between the WomanGoal Singapore Draft and the Final Draft in Madrid, the finalist players from the 17 countries will have the opportunity to tap on WomanGoal’s expertise across the various facets of the football business. 

“This is a great opportunity for female players in Singapore to show what they can do, and perhaps earn a professional contract in Europe,” said Sailors’ Women’s Team Head Coach Yeong Sheau Shyan. 

“We are delighted to be able to support WomanGoal’s efforts in Singapore and do our part to further the women’s game here and across the globe.

“I know we have talent in Singapore, and I hope female players here come out to show WomanGoal selectors what they’ve got and grab this great opportunity.” 

Trials are free of charge and are open to players aged 17 and above. Interested trialists will need to fill up this form to register their interest.
