What do Clementi, Geylang, Jalan Besar, Jurong, Jurong East, Jurong West, the Singapore Sports School and Tampines have in common?
These are all the pitches where LionsXII have had to train since coming into existence late last year.
While it is not uncommon for Malaysian Super League (MSL) teams to train at two different pitches in a bid to protect their home turf, the Singaporean side face a more peculiar situation where they have trained at eight different locations now.
Though top of the MSL, the professional outfit remain somewhat like football nomads as they traverse the island to go through technical and tactical exercises, in the hope of winning the league title on their debut season.
As it is, LionsXII already have to share Jalan Besar Stadium with S-League team Courts Young Lions, while the arena is also used for AFC Cup matches for Tampines Rovers and Home United.
This week, Jalan Besar was once again unavailable due to the AFC Cup between Tampines Rovers and Kitchee SC, and LionsXII were again forced to hop from stadium to stadium.
On Monday and Tuesday, V Sundramoorthy's men trained at the dilapidated Jurong Stadium, a 6,000-seater which used to host eight-time S-League champions SAFFC, but is not adopted by any club now.
On Wednesday, they moved to Clementi Stadium, the Stags' current stomping ground, while yesterday, they played a friendly against reality TV side First XI at Tampines Stadium.
With Singapore being a well-connected island city, the team are not complaining about the travelling.
But surely it would benefit them to have a fixed location.
For example, skipper Shahril Ishak said: "We understand these are the circumstances, but it would be nice to have a more permanent place to train in.
"The field at Jurong Stadium was hard and there were potholes. It was better at Clementi but it took a while for the third floodlight to come on."
Vice-captain Hariss Harun added: "We would have to adapt to the natural turf away from home anyway, but it would help if we are familiar with the pitch we train on, so a fixed second pitch would definitely help."
There's also the practical aspect of being able to keep the team's equipment at one fixed location, rather than having to lug them around.
Right-back Juma'at Jantan said: "It is easy to transport bibs and cones, but what about portable goal posts or free-kick walls?
"It would be nice to have a place we can truly call our own, have our own lockers to keep our things inside."
Sundram backed his players and added: "There's always areas where we can improve on and off the pitch.
"This is one of them because we need all the advantage we can get if we aim to be champions."
