MANILA--Singapore will be hosting Kaya Iloilo's matches in the group stages of the AFC Cup.

The AFC announced on Monday night that the said city-state will be the site of the bubble for Group I of the continental club football tournament.

Kaya Iloilo, last season's PFL runner-up, was drawn into the said group with Malaysian club Terrenganu, S-League powerhouse Geylang, and either Shan or Ayeyawady depending on Shan's performance in the AFC Champions League qualifiers.

Kaya Iloilo can also be taken out of the AFC Cup if they qualify for the Champions League.

The Singapore bubble will also host Group H, consisting of Malaysia's Kedah Darul Aman, Vietnam's Saigon, Singapore Lion City Sailors, and the winner of the stepladder qualifier between Cambodia's Visakha, East Timor's Lalenok United, and Indonesia's Persipura Jayapura.

Visakha and Lalenok will first face off on April 28 with the winner taking on Persipura Jayapura on May 19 for the last spot in Group H.

Geylang and Lion City are the de facto hosts of the Singapore bubble, scheduled from June 22-28, in the process.
