Aleksandar Ranković’s men will start off with trips to Indonesia and Vietnam to face Borneo FC Samarinda on 22 August and 2023 V.League 1 champions Cong An Ha Noi FC on 26 September respectively, before playing at home in their following two matches.

The Sailors will host 2023 Malaysia FA Cup runners-up Kuala Lumpur City on 9 January 2025, before welcoming Thai heavyweights Buriram United to Singapore a fortnight later on 23 January. 

Hariss Harun and company will then conclude Group B with a visit to the Philippines to face Kaya FC–Iloilo on 6 February 2025, as they look to finish amongst the group’s top two teams to progress into the two-legged semi-finals scheduled for next April.
