Perak to play at Lumut Stadium in 2018
Perak will call the TLDM (Tentera Laut Diraja Malaysia) Stadium, Lumut, their home for at least the first four months of the 2018 M-League season.

The 15,000-seater stadium, which is located around 85km from Ipoh, was confirmed as their temporary home venue by president Abdul Puhat Mat Nayan during an official player presentation ceremony on Wednesday.

New signings Brendan Gan, Misagh Bahadoran and Wander Luiz Bitencourt Junior were among those who were present at the ceremony, while Nasir Basharrudin was renamed captain at the same time following the departure of Shahrom Kalam.

"We will make several upgrades at the stadium to ensure it meets the requirements set by FMLLP (Football Malaysia LLP)," the team president said.

The Bos Gaurus were forced to play away from their regular home ground, the Perak Stadium, due to maintenance and upgrading work being carried out for SUKMA 2018, which the state will be hosting in June.

Their initial plan was to use the Manjung Municipal Council Stadium, but it was denied by FMLLP due to safety concerns.

The new M-League season will kick off on February 3, with Johor Darul Ta'zim taking on Kedah for the Charity Cup.
