The Teams


The Originals
Sunday ESPZEN, Division 1
The spark that lit the flame that engulfed amateur football in Singapore was ignited by Dian “The Godfather” back in January 2010.   The desire to bring together a bunch of guys and form a football team led Dian to scour football fields and post ads on expat and local football forums in search of talent (Back then the only criteria was pretty much the ability to stand).  A random name generator coughed up the now famous Purple Monkeys name and the 23rd of May 2010 witnessed the first ever competitive match, played in the ESPZEN Sunday Season 13, Division 12.  6 Lower League titles,  3 Division 1 League titles in a row, 1 FA Cup, 1 Champions Cup and a countless number of hungover Sundays later, the Original Purple Monkey team is firmly established in Division 1 and regularly competes for the title and silverware. 
We’re not here for the beer, we’re here for the football (Only cause we had too much to drink last night).   

Interesting Bits:
First ever expat wan*er to sign up for PMFC was John Hagi,  who turned up to the first game without any boots/football shoes.
Paul “Burly” Colvin was the first PMFC player to compete in the White Collar Boxing (Ashley “Ginga Ninja” Leek being the most recent competitor to get his head smashed in) 
PMFC originally played in either white or green kit.  The first ever Purple PMFC kit got lost in the mail, resulting in PMFC playing in yellow for the remainder of that season. 
The Managerial duo of Storan and Pablo led the team to the historic treble in Season 23, 24 and 25.  At one point the team was undefeated between 10 Jan 2016 until 8 Jan 2017, which came up to 32 matches.    



The Midweekers
Midweek Evenings, Division 1,
As playing on Saturdays and Sundays clearly wasn’t enough for some, in 2016 the evening Midweek ESPZEN team was formed giving players another excuse to miss girlfriend/wife/work obligations.  The lack of third degree burns inducing, scorched earth at midday Singapore sun, brought out a mixture of nocturnal players from across all the PMFC teams to compete in the evening league.  Currently in our third season, PMFC is as with all the teams, one of the main challengers for the prestigious title.    
Current all-time top goalscorer is Oliver “The Juice” Johnson



The Silverbacks
Over 35, International and Local Tournaments
The general consensus is that players play their best football after the age of 28.   If that’s the case, the PMFC Over 35 team “The Silverbacks” is the best team with the most talented and skilful individuals in the world.  Competing only in the best local (Winners of the Windmill Tournament, 2016 edition) and International (Phuket 7’s and Bali 6’s) tournaments, the Silverbacks are the epitome of class, grace and footballing wisdom. 

Extra bits:
Keith O Leary, the pacey Silverbacks winger is currently personally sponsored by New Balance
The most travelled Silverback?  Ross who has flown in 3 times now to Asia from Newcastle to participate in tournaments.
 


The Banter Monkeys
Saturday ESPZEN, Division 1
The Banters were formed in 2016.  It was done out of necessity as a few came to the realisation that something important was missing from the football.  A few realised that playing football on a Saturday wasn’t about the score line, it wasn’t about the League Positions or the League Titles.  What was missing was the ability to consume beer after a match, surrounded by friends after sweating awkwardly in the sun on some Singapore Secondary Scholl for 80min.  There was a need for a rebellion and that’s why there was a need for the Banters…

Extra bits:
As featured in the Banters Guide to Singapore, top 5 post match Hawker places for a beer are:  Holland Village Food Court, Marsiling Heights, Pandan Gardens, Ju Seng Huat F&B, Sin Hon Yun Coffeeshop
