For the 2013 season, pursuing a higher education at Nanyang Technological University, Wei Long signed a new contract with the Slingers with a partial commitment, which sees him missing out on most of the teams' away games. Wei Long switched his No 5 jersey to 8. Despite juggling his commitments between his studies and the team, 2013 became Wei Long's most outstanding season yet.
