The club had been due to face Roma and Celtic on their first ever trip to the country at the end of July but have withdrawn, just weeks before they were due to depart, claiming numerous “financial and logistical obligations” have not been met by the tour’s promoters Stadium X/USG.

The news of the cancellation has left supporters who have booked flights and hotels to follow the club to the Far East weighing up their options for what to do next.

For those people who have paid out thousands of pounds to travel to South Korea, the news of the cancellation has been disappointing and frustrating, with some questioning the timing of the announcement of the tour by the club.

Among those who had paid out for the trip was Carl Taylor, who has followed the club across the globe on tours and was one of 48 supporters who travelled to Armenia in the Europa League.

The 54-year-old from Erdington said he had first heard about the cancellation when his phone went crazy at work and said he started to get a sinking feeling. He says he has spent more than £1,500 on the trip.
