Gianni Infantino, president of world football governing body Fifa, will be in Singapore next month to attend a football summit.
It will be his first official visit here since being elected in February. The 46-year-old Swiss replaced long-time former president Sepp Blatter.
Yesterday, a Football Association of Singapore (FAS) spokesman said: "Mr Gianni Infantino will be in Singapore for the Fifa Executive Football Summit from Dec 6-8.
"We are working with Fifa to provide organisational support for the summit."
According to a post on the Football Federation Australia (FFA) website, Infantino will come to Singapore after a spell in Sydney, after receiving a personal invitation from FFA chief Steve Lowy.
He will be meeting senior Australian government representatives and attend round-table discussions during his Sydney stay.
Infantino will also squeeze in a visit to Papua New Guinea for the Fifa Under-20 Women's World Cup final on Dec 3.
His visit to the Republic comes amid an important period for the FAS, which has to hold its first-ever election of office bearers by May next year.
This, after Fifa said an article in the previous FAS constitution went against its directive which forbids third-party influence in a country's football association.
The constitution has since been amended. Last week, it was approved by FAS members at an extraordinary general meeting.
The FAS is now governed by an provisional seven-member council, led by former vice-president Lim Kia Tong, who was appointed as interim president.
Lim has strong ties with Fifa, and has been the deputy chairman of its disciplinary committee since May 2013.
