    For the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup 2020, Casio Singapore will be an official partner with Football Association of Singapore (FAS). As part of the partnership, Casio will be launching a limited-edition Singapore Lions and G-SHOCK watch as a show of support towards the Lions’ in the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020, which will be held from 5 December 2021 to 1 January 2021 in Singapore. Using the GBD-100-1A7 as the base model, G-SHOCK has infused a Singapore Lions inspired motif in the traditional red and white colours, into the watch design which will be worn by every member of the Singapore Men’s National Team and officials throughout the AFF Suzuki Cup campaign.

    Casio Singapore Pte. Ltd. Managing Director, Mr. Shigeru Watanabe and General Manager, Mr. Masakazu Sugawa visited the Jalan Besar Stadium today to meet the FAS’ General Secretary, Mr Yazeen Buhari and National Team Head Coach, Mr Tatsuma Yoshida along with National Team Players, Shahdan Sulaiman and Gabriel Quak to unveil and present the Lions’ G-SHOCK watches before the National Team departs for their training camp in Dubai on Sunday, 7 November 2021.

    According to the FAS General Secretary, Mr Yazeen Buhari, the endorsement of watches by the Japanese watch company is a testament that Singapore's football scene is beginning to gain positive momentum from local organisations within the country. “We are grateful for the faith and support that Casio Singapore has demonstrated to our AFF Suzuki Cup campaign. Despite these difficult years caused by the pandemic, we have seen many organisations step forward to show such unprecedented support to the local football scene. This G-SHOCK watch endorsement with the Lions’ insignia will remind the National Team squad that they are playing for a country that stands unwaveringly behind them.” Meanwhile, Mr. Shigeru Watanabe, Managing Director of Casio Singapore Pte. Ltd. hopes this will spur the Singapore National Team on to greater heights in the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup 2021.

    “As my adopted country, I will be passionately cheering on the Lions in the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup 2021. G-SHOCK stunned the world with a concept for toughness that defied conventional watchmaking logic. We trust that these limited edition pieces will, in turn, motivate our Lions to rise to the occasion, display a united toughness and stun the region in the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020. Casio Singapore is behind them all the way. Together, we are ONESTRONG!”

    He added that Casio has supported the development of various sports with its G-SHOCK brand actively. Being the official timekeeper for the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020, several marketing campaigns and events will be carried out to help promote football in the ASEAN region.

    About AFF SUZUKI CUP 2020

    As previously announced, AFF has taken the decision to host the entire tournament this year in a centralised venue instead of the usual home and away format so that the tournament can be staged in the safest manner and to prioritise the health and safety of all the teams, players, coaches, staff and fans. After extensive deliberation and discussions, Singapore was confirmed as the venue for this year’s tournament by the AFF Council.

    There is no change to the main competition format - with each team playing four fixtures in a round robin system at the Group stage and the semi-finals and finals played on a two-leg format.

    After the Draw which took place last week, reigning champions Vietnam will meet AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 finalist Malaysia as well as Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos in Group B to kick-off the defence of their 2018 title. In Group A, four times AFF Suzuki Cup champions, Singapore will have the uphill task of facing five times winners Thailand, Philippines, Myanmar and the winner of the qualification round between Brunei and Timor Leste to advance to the semi-finals of the tournament.
