Fan Profile

Name: Ian Koh

Age: 34

Club: Warriors FC

When did you start supporting the club and why?

I started supporting the Singapore Armed Forces Football Club, the predecessor of Warriors FC, since the inception of the S.League in 1996. I chose the team nearest to where I was staying (Jurong).

Favourite current player for the club?

There are many talented players but it has to be our hitman who wears No. 10, Nicholas Velez. His speed and eye for goals are simply phenomenal.

Favourite Warriors player of all time?

Warriors legend Velimir Crljen. He was the complete package; able to create goals from nothing.

How often do you watch the matches?

I try my best to attend all matches, both home and away. The farthest I have been was to Pasir Gudang in Malaysia, to support the team against Harimau Muda.

Is supporting the team a family affair?

When the league first started, my parents would take me there. I continue to support the team on my own - with the rest of the Cheer Warriors.

Favourite chant or song?

Go Warriors Go! Fight Warriors Fight! Win Warriors Win! Go! Fight! Win!
