French and German diplomats challenge Singaporean Members of Parliament on the football pitch
Singapore, 9 May 2013
A team of French and German diplomats and businessmen faces a Singaporean team composed of Members of Parliament on the football pitch. The match is the first of this kind in the history of trilateral relations between France, Germany and Singapore. It takes place on Friday May 17 at Jalan Besar stadium, at 4:45 pm.
This friendly match, supported by the Football Association of Singapore (FAS), the German Bundesliga, Lufthansa, EADS and Carlsberg, celebrates in a sportive way the strength of relations between France, Germany and Singapore. It is part of a series of events marking the 50th Anniversary of the famous “Elysée Treaty”. This Treaty marked a profound and historic change reconciliating France and Germany and also paved the way to European integration as a whole.
A key element of the Treaty is bringing the youth together, a value shared with the Singaporean Parliament and the Football Association of Singapore. The French-German team in this regard is proud to support CARE United, a community outreach programme for young players, established by FAS in 2004.
Come and support your team and the friendship between France, Germany and Singapore! (no admission fee).
