On 9 March 2018, RP signed an MOU with the FAS. This three-year partnership agreement facilitates the sharing of best practices between both parties and provides an opportunity to educate and engage the youth on sport science. The RP-FAS Centre of Excellence (COE) for Football Science was also declared open on the same day by Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Health, and Member of Parliament for Sembawang GRC Mr Amrin Amin.

Under the MOU, the joint COE will be based in the Sports Engineering Lab at the Republic Polytechnic Industry Centre. The COE also acts as a connecting node for students to the sports industry through activities and authentic learning spaces. This is the first such collaboration between the FAS and a polytechnic to improve the sport, leveraging science, technology and education.
