Singapore, Singapore

Email: cubby_leong@yahoo.com

Cubby Leong is a young and established writer within the Asian football reporting circles. After a modest start working as a copywriter for an advertising agency, Cubby made a bold move into sports journalism and had within three years into his new stint, covered major football tournaments such as the 2002 World Cup Finals, 2003 AFC Champions League, 2004 Asian Cup Finals and South East Asia’s biggest competition, the 2002 Tiger Cup.

Having written for world-renowned publications such as FourFourTwo and the now defunct www.onefootball.com, Cubby had also contributed to news agencies such as Reuters and AFP. He had also appeared on China’s biggest sports television show and had his work documented on China’s premier web portals, sina.com and sohu.com.

After working for World Sport Group and the Asian Football Confederation, the latter as Chief Editor, Cubby is now tackling the dirt and malevolence of football gambling in Asia and how illegal gaming had stifled the growth of football on the continent.
