For the second year in the row, Singapore football shows what a farce it is by having two foreign teams fighting it out in the final of the Singapore Cup. Albirex Niigata and Brunei DPMM, the two invited teams that have been participating in the Singapore Premier League beat their respective local opponents to meet in the final on 6 October.
Last year, it was Albirax Niigata battling it out with Philippine club Global Cebu in the final, where Albirex Niigata won. In fact, since 2014, no local clubs have actually won the Singapore Cup. The last local team to win was Balestier Khalsa in 2014.
What a farce Singapore football have become, where no local teams can even win their own competition.
