One of our readers Jonny Ward, pointed us yesterday to the ESPN schedule of games they will be televising in July, and would you believe it, they have scheduled Newcastle vs Fenerbahce on July 21st – a week on Saturday.
If you look at the ESPN schedule for July 21st, you will see the Newcastle vs Fenerbahce game and it kicks off at 18:00 UK time.
This is the schedule we think Newcastle have, although not all games have been announced by Newcastle, but they have been announced at least by the opposing clubs.

On July 2nd we did report there were rumors that Newcastle would be playing Fenerbahce in pre-season, and at that time there were reports of the game with Fenerbahce and that another possible match would be with with Polish side Wisla Krakow – and both games would be played in Vienna, the capital of Austria.
We’ve put the Fenerbahce game in, and assume it will be played in Austria.
With Newcastle’s first pre-season game being on Friday in Germany against Chemnitzer FC, we would expect the club to announce their pre-season schedule very shortly, but we’ve been saying that for a couple of weeks now, and there has been no time for Newcastle fans to arrange their travel to the games.
