Korea Republic's friendly international against Uzbekistan has been moved to the Queensland Sports and Athletic Centre following concerns about the state of the Ballymore Stadium pitch.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) said Tuesday's fixture was moved at the request of the Korea Football Association (KFA), which raised concerns about the condition of the playing surface.

Tickets purchased for the match are still valid.

Both teams are competing in next year's Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates, with Korea drawn in Group C alongside the Philippines, Kyrgyzstan, and China.

Uzbekistan have been drawn in Group F with Japan, Oman and Turkmenistan.
