Founded 4 years ago in 2011, the LionsXII debuted in the Malaysia Super League in 2012 and feature a full Singaporean team. The Malaysian football teams however are allowed to feature foreign players, which supposedly give them an edge over LionsXII.

Unlike the Singapore Table Tennis team which offers fast-tracked Singapore citizenship to China players, the LionsXII win full support and recognition from Singaporeans.

Do you think other sports team in Singapore will follow suit and drop foreign players?
