Liverpool confirm Malaysia visit on July 24

The Reds are set to return to Kuala Lumpur for the first time since 2011, as they take on a Malaysia XI on July 24 at Bukit Jalil Stadium.

The visit comes four days after their trip to Australia to take on Adelaide United, and will form part of the club's pre-season tour to the Asia-Pacific region.

"We visited Kuala Lumpur as part of our 2011 pre-season tour and the support we received was incredible," said Ian Ayre, Liverpool's chief executive officer on the club website.

Not only from the 80,000 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."

As well as a full Reds squad, the travelling party will include coaching staff from the club's official charity, the Liverpool FC Foundation, to carry out work in the community throughout the visit as well as take part in events with official supporters' groups.

"The national football governing body is truly honoured to host Liverpool once again and are excited by the upcoming fixture," said FAM secretary-general Dato Hamidin Haji Mohd Amin.

"It's not that we often get to see English Premier League stars. We watch them in awe on our television sets as they take on their opponents, mesmerising them with their gifted football skills.

"Watching our Malaysian XI play Liverpool is going to be an enthralling experience for all fans."
