Targetted at elite level 11-a-side youth teams in Southeast Asia and beyond, the KL Invitational Cup offers academies a unique chance to play against the best competition at some of the region’s premier football facilities.

Matches will be played at The New Camp, UM Varsity, and Ardence Arena – three outstanding floodlit artificial turf pitches within 30 minutes of the Kuala Lumpur city centre.
