We have agreed to visit Hong Kong to face South China at the Hong Kong National Stadium on Sunday August 2, kick off TBC.
South China have claimed more domestic honours than any other side in Hong Kong and currently lead the Hong Kong national championship by eight points with three games remaining in their attempt to win a 30th league title. They are yet to suffer defeat in 21 league fixtures so far this season.
Executive Director Paul Barber said: "We are delighted to accept the invitation to visit Hong Kong to play South China. We enjoyed great success on our most recent visit to the Far East when we won the Peace Cup in South Korea in 2005 and we have always been keen to return to the region.
"The Premier League is watched by millions throughout Asia and so we feel it is important to give these supporters the opportunity to come and watch games involving Premier League clubs for themselves.
"We have always enjoyed huge support worldwide and it is a sign of our tradition and success that we can now look to expand our appeal in markets such as Asia."
