Newcastle United will play Spanish side Real Sociedad at St. James’ Park on Sunday, 10th August, the weekend before the Premier League kicks off, and they have now arranged all their pre-season fixtures.
The game will kick off at 1:30 pm and it’s odd in that it’s the only home fixture of a very good eight game pre-season fixture list.
Managing Director Lee Charnley has done extremely well to get all these fixtures arranged so quickly, so that fans can plan to attend various games this summer.
Real are a good side and they finished 7th in La Liga last season, but qualified for the Champions League in the previous season, and played Manchester United, Bayer Leverkusen and Shakhtar Donetsk in the group stage of that competition last season, but didn’t progress.
Here’s Newcastle’s full list of pre-season fixtures:
|Tues 15 July||Oldham||Boundary Park, Oldham |
|Tues 22 July||Sydney FC||Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin, New Zealand|
|Sat 26 July||Wellingtom Phoenix||Westpac Stadium, Wellington, New Zealand|
