Home United Football Club, is a football club which plays in Singapore's Singapore Premier League. Home United recently came back during the 2018 Singapore Premier League in a match against Geylang International, reported in a FOX Sports Asia article.
The Police Sports Association was founded in the mid-1940s to organise football activities for the Singapore Police Force. They sent two teams to compete in the Singapore Amateur Football Association League in the 1950s and 1960s, but neither team won any trophies. Under coach Choo Seng Quee, Police SA won the inaugural President's Cup in 1968, then reached and lost the next two finals. In 1979, they joined the National Football League, were placed in Division III, and immediately earned promotion to Division II. In 1980, Police SA won the Division II title, the President's Cup and the Boggars Cup. In 1985, they were national league champions, after setting a national record as the only team to go unbeaten for 17 consecutive games. The performances of Police SA led to their selection as one of eight teams to compete in the newly formed S.League.
When the S.League was formed in 1996, the club was known as the Police Football Club. The following year, its name was changed to Home United to reflect that the team represents not only the Singapore Police Force, but also other HomeTeam departments of the Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs such as the Singapore Civil Defence Force and the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority.
Home United were two-time S.League winners and holders of a record six Singapore Cup trophies. They were the first club to achieve the S.League and Singapore Cup double in 2003.
The team's nickname is the "Protectors", and its mascot is a dragon. The team's home ground is the Bishan Stadium.
