Persib Bandung v Kuala Lumpur
Persib have lined up a prestigious friendly with Malaysian side Kuala Lumpur FC.
The fixture will be played at Soerang's new stadium, whose name I forget at the moment, and not the usual Siliwangi in the centre of Bandung.
Ticket prices will be marginally higher than normal Liga Indonesia fixtures, which are already among the highest in the country.
KL play in the second tier M League and will also be playing Perskab, Bandung District as well as no doubt shopping in Bandung's abundant factory outlets.
Fair play to Persib for attracting foreign opposition. Before this season started they also hosted Selangor in a pre season friendly. These games are vital in increasing awareness of teams from neighbouring countries.
