Good news for LionsXII fans: a complimentary shuttle service has been launched for the team's Malaysia Cup home matches.

Starting from the Perak clash on Aug 31, fans of the Malaysian Super League champions may choose to board from a variety of locations such as the Singapore Flyer, Tampines Stadium and Dhoby Ghaut Station to the Jalan Besar Stadium.

Match tickets will also be sold aboard the bus, subject to availability.

The match-day service is part of a collaboration between CityTours, Singapore Sports Council, StarHub and the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) to get football fans back to the stadium.

FAS president Zainudin Nordin said: "The euphoria that reverberated around the stadium on the night when the LionsXII lifted the league trophy was nothing short of magical.

"That is something that we wish to replicate in the Malaysia Cup campaign.

"We hope that the launch of this bus will get more fans back into the stadium and that support for local football will continue. We thank all fans for their continued support."

The detailed bus schedule can be found on the LionsXII website at http://www.lionsxii.sg.

Fans are required to stand by at the designated pick-up points five minutes before the stated time as no waiting is allowed at any bus stop. Once the bus reaches its maximum capacity of 53 passengers, it will not stop at the remaining pick-up points for other passengers.
