With just two games remaining in the 2013 campaign, the LIONSXII remain four points clear at the top of the table and are on the brink of winning the title in only their second season back in Malaysian football.
A tricky trip to outgoing champions Kelantan awaits the Singaporean outfit on the final day of the season at the weekend, but that result will be purely academic should they seal the title with a win against FELDA.
A full house is expected at the Jalan Besar Stadium on Tuesday given the game has already been sold out, while fans who were unable to get their hands on tickets will be able to watch the game on a giant screen outside the arena.
There has also been talk of a victory parade should the LIONSXII emerge triumphant and while Sundramoorthy has never been one to get ahead of himself, he believes his players are ready to be crowned Super League champions.
"The boys are physically and mentally ready for what is ahead of them," he said.
"Most importantly, we shouldn't be overawed by the occasion and just focus on the job, which is to do our best and win the title.
"I would love to win it tomorrow [Tuesday]. Of course, in football, anything is possible but the boys will give everything."
Already, Tuesday's game is set to be graced by the presence of some of Singapore's most important political figures, who will all be hoping to witness the class of 2013 create history.
But rather than let it add pressure on the LIONSXII, Sundramoorthy hopes they can rise to the occasion.
"For the boys, they should enjoy and cherish the moments when top people are watching them," the legendary ex-Singapore international explained.
"They should be happy there's such a moment where they can create history in Singapore football. I think [winning] the MSL [Malaysia Super League] title means a lot to us after 19 years.
"The league title has been away from us for so long and now is our chance to get it back. What better way than to do it in front of your home crowd?"
On paper, the LIONSXII are expected to cruise to victory on Tuesday given their opponents are currently struggling to avoid relegation at the other end of the table.
Nonetheless, Sundramoorthy believes they will pose a tough challenge but remains confident his side will be able to avoid complacency.
"Definitely, it [playing against FELDA] can be a worry for us," he added. "Any team fighting relegation will definitely field their best players and come out with their best tactics.
"It's going to be very difficult for us to break them down and they're also going to be very dangerous on their breakaways.
"But for us, it doesn't matter who we're playing against. Tomorrow [Tuesday] we must be at our best and break our opponents down to try and get the points we need."
The LIONSXII will be without the suspended duo of Baihakki Khaizan and Isa Halim, who have both played integral roles this season as two of the five over-23 players allowed in the squad.
