2016 Malaysia Cup champions Kedah have announced a friendly match with China Super League (CSL) side Hebei China Fortune.

Interestingly, the match will be played just three days after the 2017 Malaysia Super League kicks off. The friendly will be played on January 23 at the Shah Alam Stadium, at 5.00 pm.

However no further details have been announced regarding the match, as well the ticket price.

Hebei China Fortune have been one of the big spenders in the cash-rich CSL, having signed Argentina international Ezequiel Lavezzi on a £493,000-a week wage, reportedly the highest wage for a footballer in the world currently. They are managed by former Real Madrid and Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini.

In the 2016 season, Hebei placed seventh, having just been promoted from China's second tier at the end of the previous season. CSL is currently in its off-season, awaiting the kick-off for the 2017 season.
