Fandi Ahmad, the MILO Soccer Cup tournament ambassador and judge, is testament to this – it was during the MILO Soccer School where his budding talent was further developed.”

Fandi Ahmad added, “MILO has a proven track record in nurturing Singaporean athletes – including myself! Being a judge at the MILO Soccer Cup is like coming full circle after all these years. Watching young talent play their hearts out on the field always inspires me and I think events like MILO Soccer Cup are positive platforms to nurture kids in Singapore so that they can grow up to be strong, resilient individuals who work hard for their goals.”
