Football is without doubt the most popular sport with men and women alike in Singapore
. Thanks to the support of the association, which was founded in 1892, Singapore
's sportsmen and women enjoy strong competition, which has resulted in some notable success stories, such as Singapore
's triumph in the Tiger Cup, one of Asia's most popular events. In 2003, Singapore
played host to a women's football tournament that attracted a number of the world's top teams. This was just one of the association's many activities in an attempt to keep pace with the continent's giants. The association's determination is certainly paying off, as the Singapore
men's team is currently 106th in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, with the women 87th. These rankings are positive signs for Singapore
and an accurate reflection of the association's «Goal 2010» endeavours, which are geared towards qualification for the World Cup finals in Africa in 2010.
