Among Borussia Dortmund’s stars in Johor Baru are Japan’s Shinji Kagawa, who returned to Signal Iduna Park from Manchester United last summer, Marco Reus, Mats Hummels, Australian goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak and new signings in midfielders Gonzalo Castro, 19-year-old Julian Weigl, and goalkeeper Roman Bürki.
The Crown Prince of Johor and President of Johor Football Association, HRH Brigadier General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, said he is extremely excited with Borussia Dortmund’s presence in the state following successful cooperation between the two clubs.
“This is a long-term agreement between us and Dortmund. I’m serious about the development of football in Johor and I want to see it move up to the next level,” said Tunku Ismail. “Today marks a new chapter in JDT’s development plans and with BVB on our side, we will achieve positive results.”
Borussia Dortmund’s Chief Executive Officer, Hans-Joachim Watzke, said the club’s first Asia trip since 2007 reflects BVB’s long-term global strategy.
“The people in Asia want the chance to see the stars first-hand, and this is a wish that we would like to take into account. The Bundesliga’s presence in Asian TV markets is increasing. That, in turn, will help us to become better known and more visible,” said Watzke.
Borussia Dortmund remains Europe's number one club in terms of attendance figures and was the only club in the 2014/2015 season - just like in previous years - to break the sound barrier with an average attendance of over 80,000 fans per home game.
