The League Preparing For Singapore Launch in February

Exclusive dating app The League will soon be launching in Singapore, one of its first moves into the APAC market.

The platform is aiming to build a community of people that are successful in their professional lives and looking for a serious relationship.

Ahead of its official release in the island nation on the 2nd February, The League complied some data based on the users from its initial beta tests.

There will be 1,611 singles in the ‘Founding Class’, the name given to the users who are on the app when it first goes live, just 14% of the more than 11,000 people that applied. Speaking to The Verge at the beginning of last year, founder and CEO Amanda Bradford explained that people are rejected if they haven’t spent long enough filling out their profile.

The average age of men in the ‘Founding Class’ is 29, while the average age of women is 27, and the most popular employers include Standard Chartered Bank, Facebook and Google.

League Live will also be available in Singapore starting from Sunday. The feature automatically pairs users for two-minute long video calls, giving them a more effective way to work out their compatibility.

At the end of each ‘date’, if both participants like each other they’ll be connected and allowed to continue their interaction through the in-app messaging system.

Global Dating Insights will be hosting its second Singapore Conference at the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel on the 12th May. More details are coming soon.
