Delta League December 2023
The National Crime Prevention Council and the Police jointly organised the Delta League tournament this year from 20 November to 23 December 2023. Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs & Ministry of National Development, A/P Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, attended the Grand Finals as the Guest of Honour at Our Tampines Hub.
The Delta League continues to feature the football tournament alongside the increasingly popular e-sports competition to engage different segments of the youth population to keep them meaningfully occupied during the school holidays in June and December. For this edition, a total of 118 teams, consisting of 1,042 youths aged between 13 and 17, pitted their wits and skills over either football or e-gaming. 78 teams participated in the football tournament under three different categories – Category 1: Boys 13-14yrs, Category 2: Boys 15-17yrs and Girls’ Open Category. The e-gaming tournament welcomed a total of 40 teams competed against one another in the Mobile Legends: Bang-Bang (MLBB) game under the Open Category (13-17yrs). Both formats demand strong tactical abilities, planning, adaptation, and teamwork from all the participants.
Besides their participation in the football and e-gaming competition, the youths were also involved in different fun-filled activities to enhance their crime prevention awareness and to inculcate a sense of social responsibility, teamwork, and discipline. This edition started with the popular Amazing Race activity at Sentosa island on 20 November 2023. This allowed the youths to be exposed to team-building activities and crime prevention education in a different way in an outdoor environment.
As part of the Community Day activities, the youths were brought to the Home Team Festival (HTF 2023) and Bedok Youth Carnival on 25-26 November 2023 at Singapore Expo and Bedok Town Square respectively. At the events, the participants, guided by their Police Mentors, also shared crime prevention materials and tips to the visiting members of the public.
We look forward to seeing everyone in the next edition of Delta League 2024!
