Founded in March 2010 by Bruno, Yann and Pierre (an Olympique de Marseille ULTRA since 1987), the Ultras have grown from a 3 French men tag-team to a squad of more than 10 fans - local and French. The Ultras are proud to be the FIRST fan club to come out with their own merchandise (T-Shirt, Scarf, Club Badge and Banners).
The Ultras are also the first non-drumming fan club in S-League.

Reply from FAS with regards to the Letter Sent
We got a reply from Mr Nordin after a few days. Here goes....
Dear Mr Kong,
Thank you for the email dated 13 January 2012, and I appreciate your feedback on our appointments of S.League CEO and Deputy CEO.
I would like to assure our fans, including you, that the shortlisted candidates went through a rigorous selection process which included several rounds of interviews conducted by a panel comprising experienced personnel in the sporting fraternity, including A/P Ho Peng Kee, Ms Jessie Phua and Mr Lim Teck Yin.
In line with our longstanding practice, we subsequently performed due diligence on the prospective CEO and Deputy CEO candidates.
We eventually appointed Mr Lim Chin and Mr Johan Gouttefangeas as we are confident that they possess the required skill sets and abilities which will help us achieve our desired goals including the successful implementation of new initiatives in the upcoming season.
I am pleased to share with you that the club chairmen have also, in general, expressed their support and confidence in the new management team. Going forward, we are confident that Mr Lim Chin and Mr Johan Gouttefangeas will work closely and harmoniously with the respective clubs as we strive to build on the success of the S.League.
On behalf of the Football Association of Singapore and the S.League, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your support of the S.League. We hope that you will continue to do so, and let us work cohesively as a united family to bring Singapore football forward.
Zainudin Nordin President, Football Association of Singapore
