Hello NUFC Singapore!











If you are a supporter of Newcastle United, you’d be glad to know that there is a strong following for the Magpies in Singapore as well. The Newcastle United Supporters’ Club Singapore (aka NUFC.SG) is a supporter’s club officially recognised by St James’ Park, and they usually gather to watch the match on tv at The Penny Black @ Boat Quay.

NUFC.SG membership is free, and there is also a forum on their website as well.

Some of the members from the supporters’ club are also alumni from our university, and if you’re one of them, we would especially like to give you a warm welcome to our new website.

Hello, and welcome to our new website.

It’s been awhile since the SingSoc website was significantly updated, and we hope this new site will not only do the usual things like event updates or news, but also help us share memories from past events.

As much information from the old site will be transferred into this one, including an updated fresher’s guide.

We look forward to having more posts, updates, news, and of course, views from all our members and friends.

Thank you!
