Using football as an instrument, the signing promises that both organizations work towards bonding the community. This include co-organizing of workshops to reach out to both members and the public, engaging the fans and supporters and also support from the NTUC Club community in GIFC’s home matches.
Chairman of GIFC Leong Kok Fann said ” The roots of Geylang International Football Club have always been in the community since our founding in 1974. So this collaboration with NTUC Club to engage the community and promote local football – is at the very heart of GIFC’s DNA. At the end of the day we want as many people as possible to benefit from our expertise in football, from our facilities and contacts, as well as enjoy a healthy lifestyle as we demonstrate our common passion for the beautiful game of football.”
Secondly, there will also be good news for GIFC Prime League and COE boys alike as they will stand to recieve complimentary NEBO membership by NTUC Club. As NEBO players, players will be able to enjoy benefits provided by NEBO and NTUC.
Speaking about the collaboration with GIFC, CEO of NTUC Club Mr Yeo Khee Leng said “‘Football has always been popular among our union members, and this win-win partnership with GIFC will boost the quality of our engagement with them. We can provide more opportunities for them to pursue their passion in football, lead a healthy lifestyle and improve their fitness.
