The Lion City Sailors final fixture of the 2021 Singapore Premier League (SPL) season – against Balestier Khalsa at the Jalan Besar Stadium  has been moved to Sunday, 10 October.

Initially scheduled to face the Tigers on the preceding Saturday (2 Oct), the postponement comes in the wake of a Balestier player testing positive for Covid-19. 

After facing Tampines Rovers this evening (21 Sep) and Geylang International on Sunday (26 Sep), the Sailors will have almost a two-week lull to prepare for the season finale that will see all eight teams in action on 10 Oct, with kickoff scheduled for 5.30pm. 

Title rivals Albirex Niigata (S) will face Tanjong Pagar United at the Jurong East Stadium, while Hougang United, the closest local club in the chase for Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) spot, face the Young Lions.
