The 2015 Barclays Asia Trophy kicks off on Wednesday when Everton grapple with Stoke City while a Singapore Selection XI will look to stifle English FA Cup champions Arsenal at the National Stadium.
The two-day tournament is also set to be a platform for fans to witness their clubs' newest signings on display.
Here are eight new signings that will look to get off on the right foot while in Singapore before they make their mark in the English Premier League (EPL).
1. Petr Cech
2. Jeff Reine-Adelaide
3. Glen Johnson
A former Spanish Under-21 international, Joselu signed from Hannover last month in a £12 million deal and he will be eager to impress for his new club at the Barclays Asia Trophy. The 25-year-old is a former Real Madrid player, having turned out for Los Blancos from 2010-2012. A forward who has the pace to stretch defences as well as win aerial battles with ease, Joselu will look to make an impact in the EPL next season after a decent outing in the German Bundesliga last season, where he netted 10 goals in 32 appearances.
5. Jakob Haugaard
One of two goalkeepers signed to replace Asmir Begovic, who departed for EPL champions Chelsea, Haugaard joins Stoke City on the back of a successful season with Danish Superliga champions FC Midtjylland. The 23-year-old will face stiff competition from veteran Shay Given and England Under-21 custodian Jack Butland for the No. 1 role between the sticks for the Potters.
6. Shay Given
The vastly experienced goalkeeper signed a two-year contract with Stoke City after being released from the final year of his deal with Aston Villa. One of the most experienced goalkeepers in the English game, he has made over 400 EPL appearances while earning 128 caps for the Republic of Ireland. Having worked with Hughes previously at Manchester City, the veteran was captured with a view to replacing the outgoing Begovic. A strong personality, Given's presence will have an impact on the rest of the squad be it on or off the pitch.
