Chelsea captain John Terry couldn’t hide his excitement ahead of the club’s pre-season tour of Asia, which gets underway in less than two weeks.

Andre Villas-Boas’ and his Blues squad travel to Malaysia on July 17, and Terry is already looking forward to the trip ahead.

“They're always great trips,” said the centre back when asked about life on tour.

"There are often new signings who come on board and they're great for those guys. We are away for two weeks and from a football perspective it's a great chance for everyone to get to know each other.”

With four games in 10 days, the tour is very much centred around football, as Chelsea step up their preparations ahead of the new 2011/12 campaign.


But Terry is also aware of the growing Asian fan base – something the club will look to tap into to increase their level of support on the continent, promoting the Chelsea brand to the hundreds of thousands of supporters.

“It always surprises me with the fans, I've seen myself how much bigger the club has got commercially,” Terry continued.

“It's nice to see us grow and the players know how important these tours are and embrace it as much as possible.

“Fans in Asia show a real passion and I know they have to sit up at three or four in the morning to watch games in England, and I just love that commitment so it will be great to get out there and reward them for that.”
