Women's football (soccer) in Singapore has become more popular since the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) took women’s football under its wing in 2000. A Women’s Football Division was set up with the FAS in September 2004.

The rapidly growing interest for this sport holds great promise for the future of women’s football in Singapore. Currently, the ground for local women’s football is still being laid, and the grass is still growing but the trend is rising and the response has been overwhelming.

The objectives of the FAS Women’s Football Committee is to increase awareness, knowledge and popularity and raise the standard of the women's football in Singapore. It hopes to create a platform to develop future football talents and media icons and to upgrade the status of women's football in Singapore.

In 2005 Arafura Games held in Darwin, Australia, the Singapore Women’s team produced a fine showing and won the bronze medal. The Arafura Games is held every two years and is a leading international sporting competition for emerging champions of the Asia Pacific region.

In 2005, the country was one of seven teams that included Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia, East Timor, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Burma and Singapore, that were expected to field a women's football team to compete at the Asian Games in Marikina in December.[1]

Singapore women's national football team is still considered a minnows in the region, being thrashed frequently by fellow Asian teams or even ASEAN teams. Despite the men counterparts is achieving some commendable results, the women's team is still young. There is still a lot of work for the FAS to do for the lioness, if they are to succeed like the Lions.
