There are reports coming out of Turkey that Newcastle could be playing the Instanbul based Turkey club, Fenerbahce, in pre-season.
Linked with the reports of the game with Fenerbahce are that another possible match will be with with Polish side Wisla Krakow – and both games would be played in Vienna, the capital of Austria.
Newcastle have only so far announced three games as part of their pre-season, plus a game against Gateshead, where they will send a Newcastle eleven to play at the International Stadium.

But Monaco and FC Chemnitzer have previously announced they will also be playing Newcastle in pre-season too, so we expect an announcement from Newcastle on their full pre-season schedule fairly shortly, once the full pre-season schedule is worked out:
- July 13 – Friday – Chemnitzer FC at the Stadion an der Gellertstraße
- July 16 – Monday – AS Monaco at Landsberg am Lech
Landsberg am Lech is a town in southwest Bavaria, Germany and Monaco will be playing other games at that time in Germany.
We would expect these two games, if the reports are true, to be positioned after the two games in Germany and before Newcastle play in the Algarve tournament in Faro, Poutugal staring on 27th July.
