We’re pleased to confirm that our men's first team will take on 1. FC Nürnberg as part of a pre-season training camp at adidas HQ in Germany.
As we did last summer, we’ll be facing the 2. Bundesliga side at the Max-Morlock-Stadion on Thursday, July 13, kicking off at 7pm local time.
Returning to 'Home Ground', adidas’ HQ in Herzogenaurach, the match will be played as part of our preparations for the 2023/24 season. With state-of-the-art training facilities, the adidas campus will once again be our home for our short stay in Germany.
This training camp will kick off our overseas pre-season activities, and comes before we travel to the US to face an MLS All-Stars team led by D.C. United head coach Wayne Rooney, at Audi Field in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, July 19.
Our US tour then takes us to New Jersey, where we take on Manchester United at MetLife Stadium on Saturday, July 22 and concludes in Los Angeles, with our match against FC Barcelona at SoFi Stadium, on Wednesday, July 26.
Sporting Director, Edu, said: “We're excited to begin our pre-season schedule at adidas HQ, and thank adidas for hosting us again at their world-class campus. Our match against 1. FC Nürnberg is another good opportunity to help Mikel and the squad prepare ahead of the new season.
"This kicks off a strong run of pre-season fixtures, with us travelling to the US shortly afterwards to face the MLS All-Stars team, Manchester United and Barcelona."
Tickets for our match in Nuremberg are available from Monday, June 19 at 9am UK time and can be purchased directly from 1. FC Nürnberg.
Further details on our 2023/24 pre-season plans will be released soon.
