These are the words of Sebastian Hassett, Football Victoria Head of Government Relations & Facilities in Australia describing Johor Darul Ta’zim FC (JDT):

“This is the benchmark for our region and it should act as an inspiration for us all. This is exactly the kind of world class ambition we want to see for our ASEAN clubs.

“I think it will be the catalyst for the rest of the region to start taking this kind of infrastructure investment seriously. An example of what can be achieved when you put football first. @OfficialJohor will benefit now – but this will lift the tide of Malaysian & ASEAN football.”
