The LionsXII's opening fixture of the 2013 Malaysian Super League season will see them come up against a familiar opposition in ATM FA.

B. Sathianathan's newly-promoted Armed Forces side will play hosts in Paroi on Jan 9, in a repeat of this year's Malaysia Cup semi-final which the Singaporean outfit lost on penalty kicks.

It does not get any easier for the LionsXII after that. They go on to face traditional rivals Selangor at the Jalan Besar Stadium just three days later.

Fandi Ahmad's star-studded Johor Darul Takzim side are due on Feb 19 in Larkin, and June 22 at Jalan Besar.
