Stade de Reims tour of Indonesia 1956

Stade de Reims toured Indonesia at the invitation of Chung Hwa Tsing Nien Hui, a local Chinese youth association. One week before their first match against Persidja, the French club had lost the first ever final of the European Champions' Cup 3-4 to Real Madrid, after having taken an early 2-0 lead. They were also winners of the 1953 Latin Cup and runners-up (also against Real Madrid) in the 1955 edition of that tournament.
