Berlin, Dec 19, IRNA - German Bundesliga club Hansa Rostock is planning to play a test match against Iran's national football in Tehran, Hansa club spokesman Axel Schulz told IRNA on Tuesday.
"We hope to be able to play against Iran on January 5. However, the date is not definitive yet as some organizational details have yet to be worked out this week," the official said.
He added the Bundesliga squad would fly to Tehran from its winter training camp in Dubai and return the same day after the match.
Meanwhile, Hansa coach Frank Pagelsdorf was quoted as saying in the local Rostock media that he would be "greatly delighted to play in front of 70,000 spectators" at Tehran's Azadi stadium.
Hansa Rostock features also Iranian B-national team footballer Amir Shapourzadeh in their line-up.
Several Bundesliga clubs, among them Hamburger SV and FC Cologne, have in the past played against the Iranian national football team.
