Tony Fernandes: QPR chairman exposes his club to the developing Asian markets
Queens Park Rangers have confirmed they will travel to Asia for their pre-season tour this summer.
Mark Hughes' side will play a total of two games during the trip, one in Thailand and another in Malaysia.
Their first game will take place on July 14th against a Thai All Star XI side at the 60,000 capacity Ramajangala National Stadium in Bangkok.
They will then proceed to Malaysia where they will play against a Football Association of Sabah Select team in Kota Kinabalu.
Hoops chairman Tony Fernandes, who owns AirAsia, is excited about the tour and the exposure that will be granted to his developing club.
"We are very excited and honoured to be heading to Asia for our pre-season tour," he told the club's official website.
"The fans in Asia have embraced QPR since we became involved with the club and it's great that we can give so many of them a chance to come and watch the team play for the first time.
"It is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our brand in this part of the world. This brings QPR to the global stage which is critical to our commercial efforts."
