Tournament Information

Asia's Largest Youth Tournament

The JSSL Singapore Professional Academy 7s is Asia’s Premier Youth Football competition which showcases the young talent of over 450 teams across 17 countries. Teams from all around the world will come together in April 2023 to compete in our 7-a-side tournament right here in sunny Singapore.

Who may participate?

All clubs are welcome to participate in the JSSL Singapore Professional Academy 7’s. Our goal is to give as many clubs and teams the opportunity to take part and compete in Asia’s No 1 youth football tournament. Teams will be accepted based on previous performance(s) at the JSSL 7s and on merit.

The tournament begins with a group play. Teams are divided into groups of six or seven teams, where all teams play each other once. Following that, the top four placed teams of the group will qualify for “Cup Knock Out”, while the remaining teams in the group will qualify to the “Plate Knock Out” stages. The tournament is played under all applicable FIFA rules.

All players must be insured, both for games and leisure time. Arrival for all teams is Wednesday 5th or Thursday 6th April. The Coaching Convention is on Thursday 6th April 2023. Kick-off for the group round games is on Friday 2nd September. Group games will continue on Saturday 3rd September. Sunday 4th September will be for all knock-out games, with all finals being played at OUR TAMPINES HUB, the main venue.
