Étoile Football Club was a professional football club which was formed to play in Singapore's S.League in 2010.

Étoile FC is the first team of players all born in Europe to play football in Singapore's professional league, and the first in Asia. The team is mostly made up of players of French origin.

History[edit]

Étoile FC became the eighth team defined by foreign team composition to compete in the S.League after Sinchi FC (2003), Albirex Niigata (2004), Sporting Afrique (2006), Liaoning Guangyuan and Super Reds (both 2007), Dalian Shide Siwu FC (2008) and DPMM FC (2009). Étoile FC's debut season was one for the team to remember as they were not only crowned Champions of the Singapore League Cup, but also the Champions of the S-League and 3rd Position in the Singapore Cup.

Étoile FC became the first foreign team to win the Singapore League following a 4–2 win over Albirex Niigata Singapore FC at Jurong East Stadium. On that fateful night, Kobayashi had scored twice to give the Japanese satellite team a 2–1 lead at half time. However, goals by Frédéric Mendy (2 goals) and Matthias Verschave sealed the title win for Étoile FC.

Étoile FC was the 'brainchild' of ex-Gombak United midfielder Johan Gouttefangeas. He was the chairman of Étoile FC since its formation in 2010. However, in June 2011, Johan relinquishes his position as Chairman and Hicham Moudden takes over.[1]

Étoile FC pulled out of the S-League for the 2012 season to focus on grassroots football and youth development.[2]
