The upcoming coronation will effectively signal the end of reigning champions Tampines Rovers' stranglehold of the title, which they held for the last three years.
Ironically, the Stags will be the stumbling block for the oil-rich sultanate's only professional football club this Friday before the fate is to be decided if the latter can check-in 15-kilogram trophy over the airport counter.
Meanwhile, victory by both Tampines and Warriors, who will face Albirex Niigata (Singapore), on Friday will ensure the league trophy remains within the Republic boundary.

Adi Said scored the all-important goal in the 61st minute to seal all three points before the sending off of Roy O'Donovan left some tainted spots of the evening.
The suspension of the Irish marksman would prove costly for Coach Steve Kean's bid for the title against Tampines at Jalan Besar.
Nonetheless, the Scotsman is pleased with the result when facing the media after the match.
Said the former Blackburn Rovers coach:"I am delighted with the result tonight and it was a tough one to get, as Albirex is a very tactical side that holds very good possession."
"I don't want to pay much attention to the past records and we had worked hard for the past eleven months." added Coach Kean when asked if the Wasps' poor records against the Stags this season would be a weighing factor during the coming showdown.

"I just want to stay focused on our game that I want to reflect tonight's result before thinking of the next game (against the Warriors), as we have nothing to lose and we playing for ourselves." said the 38-year-old coach in the post-match press conference.
