Malaysia XI vs Liverpool FC @ Bukit Jalil National Stadium ( 24 July 2015 )
The Reds kick-off in Kuala Lumpur against the Malaysian XI at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium on Friday 24 July. The match will be organised by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and promoted by ProEvents International Sdn Bhd.
Ian Ayre, Liverpool FC Chief Executive Officer, said "We visited Kuala Lumpur as part of our 2011 pre-season tour and the support we received was incredible, not only from the 85,000 fans that turned out to watch us play at Bukit Jalil, but all our fans in Malaysia throughout our visit.
Pre-season is an important time for the team as they prepare for the upcoming season and the match against the Malaysian XI is an exciting part of that preparation. The tour gives our supporters a chance to see the team up close, no matter how far away from Anfield they might live."
FAM general-secretary Dato' Hamidin Haji Mohd Amin said "The national football governing body is truly honoured to host Liverpool once again and are excited by the upcoming fixture.
It's not that we often get to see English Premier League stars. We watch them in awe in our television sets as they take on their opponents, mesmerising them with their gifted football skills", added Dato' Hamidin. "Watching our Malaysian XI play Liverpool is going to be an enthralling experience for all fans."
As well as a full Liverpool FC squad, the touring party will include coaching staff from the Club's charity, Liverpool FC Foundation, to carry out work in the community throughout the visit as well as taking part in events with official supporters' clubs.
