FAS have increased the S-league money by 30%-40% for the clubs for the 2011 season.
So local clubs should received S$650k min this season but after deducting the SSC fees and everything else, and based on the figures provided by Balestier Khalsa weeks ago, there should be no more than S$370k left for most clubs; provided SSC does not increase fees again.
Let be positive and say it is a reboot but let be honest as well and say that it will help more that after all that, the money should have been more than 1996, the year S-league started, seed money of $400k after everything else.
However, like I noted before it is a long process - meaning decades - for the league to build up so if the money trail stalled again after this year then I see little point celebrating as it will be the year 2000 once more.
The work is only starting and S$650k should be seem as a start and not the end.
Sack everyone and everything - South Melbourne 1 Kingston City 4 - If I wanted last season to be over because of its brutal length, then surely this season I want to come to an end as quickly and as painlessly as possible....
