Glory's AFC Asian Champions League opponents confirmed
Glory will face Chinese giants Shanghai Shenhua and Korean powerhouse Ulsan Hyundai in the club’s maiden AFC Asian Champions League appearance after the draw for the group stage of the competition was made at AFC House in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.
The WA side have been drawn in Group F where they will also face the winner of Play-Off 3 between clubs representing Japan, Thailand, Philippines and Myanmar.
Glory's opening game will take place on Tuesday 11 February 2020 when Shanghai Shenhua will provide the opposition at HBF Park and club Chief Executive Officer Tony Pignata is thrilled at the prospect.
"It's an exciting draw for the club," he said, "and it's fantastic to be a part of our first ever Asian Champions League campaign.
"We're all looking forward to the first home game against Shanghai and really hope that the people of Perth get on board.
"With the trips to China, Korea and possibly Japan to come, it's great to be a part of the world game in this way."
Glory will face each of the other three teams in their group at home and away, with the club's final game scheduled for Wednesday 6 May when Tony Popovic's men will host the Play-Off 3 winner.
