Football: A-League expansion plan gets mixed response in Asia
KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Malaysia welcomed Australia's plan to expand its domestic A-League into Asia but other potential partners were more guarded on Wednesday.
Singapore said it wanted to hear more details, while an Indonesian official said the country had had no contact with Australia over the proposal.
The comments come after A-League head Damien de Bohun raised the prospect of games staged in Asia - and involving clubs based around the region - as early as the 2014-2015 season.
Australia is hosting the region's biggest football tournament, the Asian Cup, involving the continent's top national teams, in early 2015.
