8 June 2017, Singapore – In the lead up to the highly anticipated 2017 International Champions Cup (ICC) Singapore, Clarke Quay is proud to host Football In The City; a series of activities catering to all football fans, regardless of age and club allegiance.
A collaborative initiative by Catalyst Media Group (CMG) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB), and co-hosted by Clarke Quay, the public can look forward to various thematic fan engagement events, family-friendly carnivals, appearances by Club legends and LIVE screenings of other ICC matches at the iconic lifestyle and entertainment venues in the months of June and July. ICC Singapore ticket holders will also enjoy special privileges in the lead up to the tournament.
Football In The City kicks off on 11 June with a family carnival at Clarke Quay. A key member of FC Bayern’s youth coaching team will conduct three 30-minute football clinics from 11am to 12.30pm and give the public a glimpse of the drills that are integral to the German champions’ training regime. The clinics are free and opened to children aged 6 – 12 on a first come first served basis. Other than the football clinic, other activities available for the entire family include interactive games, special complimentary ICC stickers and temporary tattoos for littles ones. Be entertained by a dazzling display of freestyle football by SG Tekkers and pick up some tips and tricks from the free coaching session offered by SG Tekkers. Photo booths offering fun photo opportunities will ensure the good times are captured, while FC Bayern’s club mascot, Berni, will pose for selfies and hand out high-fives.
The ICC Singapore Trophy will be unveiled on Sunday and be on display at various Football In The City activities in the next few weeks, before it makes its final journey to the National Stadium. FC Bayern will also showcase their Bundesliga trophy, and fans can purchase their ICC Singapore tickets at the special pop-up ticketing counter at the carnival to ensure they do not miss out on any of the action in July.
Clarke Quay will also be home to fans of Chelsea FC and FC Internazionale as both Clubs “take over” the venue on selected evenings during the week of the tournament.
