First XI

Channel 5
From 14 Mar 2012, Wed, 8pm – 9pm


The search is on for the best amateur football talent in Singapore! Trials begin in February 2012, and are open to all nationalities in Singapore. Selected players to form the squad will get a chance to train in a professional football setup and go through 4 months of grueling training under the watchful eyes of Liverpool legend Steve McMahon, and ex-national player R. Sasikumar. Through weekly elimination challenges, the eventual FIRST XI, and 7 reserves will take on a professional team in the final episode, a “live” televised match.

First Xl is a ground-breaking concept where viewer engagement is extended beyond conventional television, across MediaCorp’s platforms such as OOH, OTT, Xinmsn, TODAY & radio. With this wide reach, advertisers will thus be able to target their audience with customized campaigns on the different platforms.
