We take on Sunderland in our opening match at the impressive Hong Kong National Stadium on Wednesday, July 24 and will then play either Manchester City or local team and club partners South China FC on Saturday, July 27.
 
“It’s always lovely to play in Asia,” said Jan, who enjoyed such an impressive first season at the club last term, making 49 appearances in all competitions and scoring six goals.
 
“The supporters are so enthusiastic and give so much love and respect. I’m really looking forward to playing there.
 
“I don’t know Hong Kong at all either, so it’s always great to go to new countries.”
