KAS Eupen will open 2017 with an absolute belter of a game. At the training camp (7 to 15 January) held in Doha, the capital of Qatar, KAS Eupen will meet not only China’s top team, Shanghai SIPG, with its Brazilian national player Hulk, but also FC Bayern Munich. The match between FC Bayern Munich and KAS Eupen is scheduled for 6pm on 10 January.
Christoph Henkel: “A great honour and a unique opportunity.”
Throughout January 2017, the German record-breaking champion is preparing for the second half of the season at the sports facility of the Aspire Academy. Bayern will round off its training camp with the test match against KAS Eupen. KAS Director General Christoph Henkel is enthusiastic about his club’s meeting with Bayern Munich: “It is a great honour for KAS Eupen and a unique opportunity to be able to play against FC Bayern Munich. For sure, this will be an unforgettable game for us all, one which no one in the club will ever forget.”
Jordi Condom: “Better partners do not exist”
KAS coach Jordi Condom is also looking forward to the game against FC Bayern Munich: “One cannot imagine a better partner for a test match. This is a great experience for the whole club. Only two days later, we have the opportunity to compete against Shanghai, with its Brazilian superstar Hulk. So we can enter the decisive phase of the championship with the cup games against Zulte and the two home games of the Pro League against KRC Genk and Standard Liège fully prepared.”
