Hougang have been drawn into Group C, alongside Courts Young Lions and closest rivals Home United, in the Starhub League Cup slated to start on July 26.
Hougang will first play their fixtures away at Jalan Besar Stadium to face the Courts Young Lions on July 29th, before coming back to Hougang to face Home United on August 1st.
This years’ competition will also see a new format. Previously an all-round knockout competition, the top two teams from the group will qualify for the quarter finals, whilst the bottom teams from the four groups will contest in a plate competition, consisting of two semifinals and a final.
The Cheetahs will be looking forward to continue the dream run of last season, where they were the runners up of the competition, beating the likes of Woodlands, SAF FC and Home United along the way, before losing to defending champions Albirex Niigata in the finals.
Will the Cheetahs enjoy another cup dream run and win their first major silverware against all odds?? Come down and support the ONLY team from the Northeast!!
Come on Hougang! NO Surrender! (SOURCE)
