Mark your calendars for Friday, the 10th of May, Sailors fans. 

That is when the Lion City Sailors will kick off their 2024/25 Singapore Premier League (SPL) campaign, as they take on Hougang United at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

This match will come six days after the Sailors’ SPL Community Shield clash against last season’s league winners Albirex Niigata (S) on Saturday, 4 May at the same venue. 

The first home game of the season for Aleksandar Ranković’s men will be on the following Saturday, 18 May, when they host a refreshed Young Lions outfit at Bishan Stadium. 

The 2023 Singapore Cup champions will then fly to Brunei to play Brunei DPMM at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium at Bandar Seri Begawan on Saturday, 15 June, before hosting Albirex – this time in the league – the following Sunday, on 23 June. 

The fixture list for the 2024/25 SPL season was officially announced by the Football Association of Singapore on Friday afternoon (12 April). 

With the league changing from a three-round format to four, the Sailors will play a total of 32 SPL matches. The Sailors’ last match of the season will see them take on BG Tampines Rovers on Saturday, 24 May, 2025.
