Guillermo Amor will take his squad to Malaysia as the team looks to increase its preparations ahead of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season.

In total, Adelaide will be in Malaysia for eight days, playing one match against local opposition, FA .  The Reds will continue their intense training regime while in Malaysia, utilising the warmer temperatures and humid climate to enhance the team’s fitness levels.

Amor and his side will depart Adelaide on Sunday, heading straight for Kuala Lumpur where the team will train at Multimedia University over four days.

United then travel to Penang on Friday to play first division side, FA Penang, on Saturday night before returning to Adelaide on Tuesday morning.

Adelaide United’s High Performance Manager, Greg King, said the trip will be very beneficial for the squad heading into the new season.

“We weren’t able to go on a pre-season trip like this last season, so it’s pretty exciting,” King said. “The trip is going to be a lot of hard work, though, and the match against Penang that we have lined up will definitely help our preparations.”
