CITY CONFIRM FOUR PRE-SEASON FRIENDLIES

6 June 2017

The Club can now confirm four fixtures for their 2017/2018 pre-season schedule.

The four matches - two at home and two away - will all take place next month (July).

The four confirmed fixtures are:

  • Guiseley (AWAY) - Tuesday 18 July 2017 - kick off 7:45pm
  • Sunderland (HOME) - Saturday 22 July 2017 - kick off 3:00pm
  • Newcastle United (HOME) - Wednesday 26 July 2017 - kick off 7:30pm
  • FC Halifax Town (AWAY) - Saturday 29 July 2017 - kick off 3:00pm

Near neighbours Guiseley and FC Halifax will both feature in the National League next season.

Guiseley maintained their place in the league for a third successive season with a final-day draw at home to Solihull Moors at the end of April.

FC Halifax gained an instant return to the conference thanks to play-off success over Chorley last month.

North-East giants Sunderland and Newcastle will both visit the Northern Commercials Stadium this summer in the build-up to the new campaign.

Rafael Benitez's star-studded Newcastle squad are back among the country's elite after winning the Championship last season.

Sunderland will be looking to return to the Premiership themselves in the 17/18 campaign after sadly suffering relegation.

Sunderland's friendly with the Bantams will be their first trip to BD8 since City's memorable Emirates FA Cup fifth round success over the Black Cats back in 2015.

Newcastle haven't visited Valley Parade since the 2000/2001 season when both sides were in the Premier League.

The dates and times of the Sunderland and Newcastle matches are subject to final confirmation with the relevant authorities nearer the time.

Admission prices for these four pre-season friendlies will be confirmed in due course.
