Mark your calendars. 

After two seasons away, the Lion City Sailors finally return to their Bishan Stadium home in 2023, and will kickstart the Singapore Premier League (SPL) campaign hosting Tanjong Pagar United on Friday, 24 February. 

Risto Vidaković’s men will look to bank on home comforts for what is a fast and furious start to the season, with four out of their opening five fixtures to be played at the venue. 

The fixture list for the 2023 SPL season was officially announced by the Football Association of Singapore on Friday evening (27 January). 

The Sailors won four times and drew twice at Bishan in their inaugural SPL season in 2020, before upgrading works meant taking up temporary residence at Jalan Besar Stadium in the following two years. 

Fans can also look forward to Sailors’ first visit to Brunei in Round 2 when they play Brunei DPMM at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium at Bandar Seri Begawan on Saturday, 13 May.

Shortened from four rounds in 2022 to three, the 2023 SPL season will conclude on Sunday, 27 August with the Sailors facing Geylang International in their last league fixture of the year.
