The annual mid-year tournament - the Starhub League Cup is scheduled to kick off on the 7th of July starting with the group stages following the draw on last Friday that saw the participating 12 teams split in four groups with three teams each.

Unlike last year that saw the NFL clubs having to go through a playoff to decide their berths, this year will see both Singapore Recreation Club and Police SA represent the part-timers in the tournament.

Here is a recap of the grouping:-
  • Group A: Albirex Niigata (S) FC, Tanjong Pagar United FC, Police Sports Association
  • Group B: Tampines Rovers FC, Geylang International FC, Warriors FC
