Arsenal has a very strong fan base not only in Malaysia but also in Asia as a whole. The match has brought a lot of excitement from Arsenal fans from other countries like Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Brunei.
Julian Kam, Chief Executive Officer of ProEvents Group said it was a closely wrapped secret although it had been planned for quite some time when Arsenal confirmed that the Gunners will kick-start their first pre-season tour in Asia since 1999.
“It was a closely kept wrapped secret until we let the cat out of the bag today. This is our way of telling the team that we in ProEvents are not letting your recent success go unnoticed.
 “Everyone is excited with Malaysia’s match against Arsenal. It is good to see how we far against the millionaire professionals. Winning and losing is part and parcel of the game but we are confident that you will keep Malaysia’s flag flying with pride.
“We hope that our Malaysian players will be able to learn a point or two from them (Arsenal players) and take their game to a new level. At the same time, we hope that one or two of our players will be able to impress the Arsenal talent scouts,” said Kam, who is an appointed FIFA match agent.
