Manchester United to tour Asia again in summer

Manchester United will return to Asia this summer for a four-match tour that includes the club's first ever visit to Indonesia.
The Red Devils' seventh Asian tour since 1995 will also include stops in China, South Korea and Malaysia.
"Our tours to Asia are always special," chief executive David Gill said Wednesday. "The atmosphere generated by the supporters is amazing. The club enjoys unrivaled support across the continent and it is great to give those fans the opportunity to see their heroes in action in their own country."
The club will leave on July 16 for China, where details of the match have not yet been finalized. The team will then head to Seoul for a game at the World Cup stadium on July 20.
United will be in Jakarta to face an Indonesia Super League select side at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium on July 24. United's final match will be against a Malaysian side at the Shah Alam Stadium or Bukit Jalil Stadium on July 26.
United claims more than half of its 333 million followers are located in Asia.
"This tour takes in some new areas, with a game in Malaysia, where we haven't played since 2001, and one in Indonesia, so it promises to provide some exciting new experiences," Gill said.
