Why change in mindset and culture is needed from players, coaches, administrators, and even parents and schools.

Synopsis: The Straits Times looks at the talking points in sport every second
Wednesday of the month.

The Unleash The Roar! (UTR) project was announced in 2021 with various long-term initiatives to uplift Singapore football, and help rally the nation behind a shared dream of achieving success.

And while results in the past year across various age groups in Singapore football continue to decline, patience has been urged by the team helming the project. With two years gone, what has UTR achieved so far?

Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Culture, Community and Youth Eric Chua, who is also the UTR’s executive committee chairman, joins ST sports reporter Deepanraj Ganesan to discuss the UTR project, what has been done so far and what Singaporeans can expect in the months and years ahead.
