ExcluSinga becomes official LionsXII fanclub
The LionsXII officially has its XII man, as yesterday ExcluSinga were confirmed to become the official fan club of LionsXII. Having originated as the Exclusive Singapore XII fanpage on facebook, the group decided to support the LionsXII physically opening up a group page on facebook. Within just 6 hours the group collected over 100 members. Currently the group holds over 500 members.
Since then they have been the voice of the LionsXII supporting the team in full colour and passion at the stadium. Away from games they have gone through the tedious procedure of countless e-mails and phonecalls to FAS and the security council, to get the group officially recognized away from the pitch, which was finally granted yesterday.
After the announcement JustSports caught up with Yazri Yaakob, one of the founding members of ExcluSinga, who talks us through the fan club.
First things first, congratulations on becoming the official fan club, what benefits or advantages does it bring to the group?
The advantages of being in the ExcluSinga fan group are that we will have seats allocated to us and purchases of tickets in bulk. Apart from that, new friendship will develop and members will get to support the LionsXII in a more organized manner.
How can someone join your fanclub?
Joining the ExcluSinga is easy and anyone can join. We have members from all walks of life, young and old. Just visit our group page at FB and send request to join the group. The admins will do the rest.
Do you have any merchandise?
For now, we have the T shirt and the muffler. However we aren’t commercializing our product because it’s there as form of identification. So that, the admins will have an easy time to differentiate the members and thus make the group more organized.
A couple of weeks ago, there were a few issues about the security during a LionsXII game at Jalan Besar. Have their been improvements in this area since then?
We have a very constructive discussion with the security council today. We informed them about our concerns and vice-versa. We can only see if there’s any changes, on tomorrow’s game against Perak.
Its been an incredible season for the LionsXII so far this season. What has been the moment of the season so far?
There’s a few nominees but i must say that the game against Sarawak is my choice. The LionsXII did well in front of the boisterous and at times rowdy crowd.
Thanks for answering our questions
Once again, we thank you for this opportunity. Our hopes are to get the LionsXII fans to support the team as one united people. We expressed our gratitude to the FAS, Security council and especially the fans for helping us in one or another to make this group a success. We hope to find more creative ways in supporting LionsXII and the local Singapore football. So the fans will enjoy and the players will be hype up hearing and seeing fans cheering for them. ‘
