In a major exciting news, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes’ QPR will be making a stop in KK, Sabah to play SAFA’s selection on the 18th of July. Sourced from QPR’s official website;
“I’m also thrilled to be going to East Malaysia which in many ways is the home of AirAsia. To the best of my knowledge no-one has ever toured in Sabah. I’m thrilled that we have remembered all the people that have helped AirAsia get off the ground by bringing QPR to Sabah.”
The tour will commence on Tuesday 10th July, with Bangkok – the capital city of Thailand – being the first destination.
The squad will train at the former Suphachalasai National Stadium in central Bangkok, prior to locking horns with a Thai All Star XI at the 60,000 capacity Rajamangala National Stadium on Saturday 14th July.
Thereafter, the R’s will jet to Kota Kinabalu, where Hughes’s squad will train at the 35,000 capacity Likas Stadium, before playing a Football Association of Sabah Select team at the same venue on Wednesday 18th July.
Well I hope they really will make a stop-over here, as we rarely get an EPL team here. Hope it doesn’t get cancelled like Robbie Fowler’s case a few years back.
I think Joey Barton’s ban is not in effect for friendly, so we can expect to see the controversial man himself live on the pitch.
More news will be published when they are available.
