The Singapore Slingers opened the third season of the Asean Basketball League against the Indonesia Warriors a little over a week ago (the Warriors beat the Slingers 79-59). The season got off to a late start this year due to some scheduling changes so that the ABL teams could play in the FIBA Asia Championship.
We went to some Slingers games last year and were excited to be able to catch a couple more games before we leave Singapore. Jeff and I have a lot of fun cheering for the home team.
Sadly, there have always been more empty seats than full seats at Singapore Indoor Stadium whenever we've been there for a Slingers game. I'm not sure why there aren't more people at the games. Regular tickets are less than $20, it's a family friendly thing to do, and there aren't many other live sporting events in Singapore. I wish more people would support the Slingers. I'd love to see them play to a sold out stadium.
Want to watch the Slingers play? The next home game is Sunday, January 29th against the Bangkok Cobras. Tickets can be purchased at Sistic or from the ticket window at the stadium.
