Cardiff City postpone Malaysian pre-season tour

Cardiff City

Cardiff City have called-off a proposed pre-season tour to Malaysia until next season, the club have confirmed.

The Championship club were to embark on a summer trip to Kuala Lumpur after Cardiff were saved by a £6m investment from a Malaysian consortium.

The Malaysian national side were due to host the Bluebirds and boss Dave Jones recently returned from a reconnaissance mission but decided to reschedule.

Jones said: "This summer we've decided to revert to our alternative plans."

Cardiff, who have enjoyed successive pre-season tours to Portugal, have already confirmed three pre-season friendlies.

Jones' men travel to Bath City on 8 July and League One new boys Notts County on 24 July before hosting Spanish giants Deportivo La Coruna at the Cardiff City Stadium on 31 July.

But Cardiff have abandoned their summer tour due to logistical and timing reasons to play more friendlies in the UK.

"After a great trip to Malaysia, we can see that the opportunities and benefits to the club would be much bigger if we have the tour next year," said Jones.
