Twenty-five players from the squad will participate in the Thailand training camp ahead of the biennial Games.
Twenty-seven players have been called up to the Singapore women’s national football team provisional squad by head coach Stephen Ng for the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.
The tournament, which will be held in Vietnam, will run from May 12 to May 23. The Lionesses are in Group B, alongside Myanmar, Thailand and Laos.
Among the 27 players, 11 hail from the Lion City Sailors.
Balestier Khalsa is the next most represented team in the squad with four players, followed by Still Aerion with three and Tiong Bahru with two.
Albirex Niigata (S), Bussorah Youth Sports Club, Kibi International University, Eastern Florida State (USA), Mill Hill School (ENG), Hougang United, and University of Edinburgh (SCT) are the other teams represented in the squad, with one player each.
