The 2014 fixture list for the upcoming Malaysia Super League (MSL) and the FA Cup has been released, with reigning league champions LionsXII set to kickstart their title defense against cup winners Pahang FA on January 17 at the Darul Makmur Stadium.
The LionsXII's first MSL home game comes against Selangor FA on January 25, but the match will be played at Bishan Stadium instead of the Jalan Besar fortress as the latter venue is still undergoing renovation and re-turfing works. The first FA Cup game against KL DRB Hicom on January 21 will also be played at Bishan.
The first match set to be played at Jalan Besar, where the LionsXII only dropped two points last season, will be on the February 8 against Terengganu FA.
New coach Fandi Ahmad is currently with his charges in Indonesia on a pre-season training tour, where they have lost one and won another of their three scheduled friendly games.
