Being an amateur footballer who is ready to don the colors of your team or a team manager who is ready to guide your side at the League of Champions competition from December 10th, It is inevitable that there are several interesting ‘topics’ to discuss with your teammates on the aftermath of the LOC 2011 draw. One major issue would come into the mind of these lads as they compare, determine and finally debate on which group is ultimately known as the ‘group of death’.
In Group A, you have our reigning champions SCC Firsts facing Armanis FC, a mainstay in the first division of the ESPZEN Sunday League. Potentially a major force in the amateur football scene in the near future thanks to their recent accolade in the FAS Islandwide League, Siglap CSC are no pushovers either whilst Samalongkok possess players who claimed the gold in the SUniG(Singapore University Games) this year.
In Group B, Ang Mo Kio United will battle reigning D2D Sunday Afternoon League Division 1 champions and D2D Sunday Cup champions Team BI. Aside from the NFL Division 1 side, EFL Premier Division champions Singapore Vipers and Goal Arena Sunday Morning League Premier Division champions Blackjack FC are ready to make their debut in the LOC.
Capturing a fourth place finish in the inaugural LOC last year, Eunos Crescent FC is vying against Cosmo League’s Latini FC who is making their debut in Group C. D2D Saturday Afternoon League Division 1 champions El Torro Futebol and an exuberant H-TWO-O ITE Dream Team who won the H-TWO-O/ITE Ultimate Champions League recently are also making their appearance.
Runners-up in LOC 2010, Cosmo League’s Casuals FC take on ESPZEN Saturday League Division 1 champions Team Intense whilst D2D Sunday Morning League Division 1 champions Torpedo Rovers and Goal Arena Sunday Afternoon League’s Y Homeless FC are set to make their first start in this elite competition in Group D.
Which group is the ‘group of death’ in LOC 2011?
