Singapore, August 26, 2008 – An online fund-raising campaign has been started to enable Singapore’s top cyber-athletes compete in the upcoming Grand Finals of the World Cyber Games (WCG) ’08 in Cologne, Germany. This fundraising campaign is crucial after gamers were stranded without sponsorship even though they qualified at the National Finals to represent Singapore. Three of these Singaporean champions are even medal hopefuls in Cologne.

The players who have won WCG 08 Singapore and being supported in this fundraising are Mohamed Phirkhan s/o Mohamed Yusuf Khan (FIFA 08), Mohamed Fadhil Bin Mohamed Anwar (Need for Speed), Dennis Ooi (Command & Conquer 3), Lim Wei Yang (Warcraft III), Danny Koo Kwok En (Virtua Fighter 5) and Wilson Chia (Virtua Fighter 5).

Of these 6 players, SCOGA have strong reasons to believe that Wilson, Phirkhan and Danny have good medal chances in Cologne. However, SCOGA will be fundraising for all 6 with a goal of S$ 30,000/- through our online website http://www.SCOGA.org/SGchamps.

 Donations can be made through Paypal, cheque, and by 28th of August, through eNETS which supports Mastercard and VISA. We have to reach our targets by early September 08. Sponsorships are also welcome.

At the time of writing, close to S$ 5,000/- have been raised through the gaming community and friends.

On behalf of our Singapore cyber-champions, we plead for your support to donate and help us spread the word. Your support is crucial in sending these Singaporeans to cyber Olympics and win a medal for Singapore.

We do not have much time and every effort counts.
