Another Newcastle United Pre-Season Friendly ‘Confirmed’

10 years ago

The baffling lack of information on Newcastle’s pre-season arrangements continues, with still no official confirmation from the United end that the friendly in Germany is happening next Friday. Only the friendlies against Olympiakos (27th July), Porto (28th July) and Cardiff (11th August) currently with official confirmation.

Tickets have been on sale at Chemnitzer since Tuesday for Newcastle’s  match against the lower league German outfit – match (allegedly!) scheduled for Friday July 13th (6.30pm).

We have asked Newcastle United to confirm this match and any others arranged, we’ll bring you that information as soon as we hear anything.

There has now been ‘confirmation’, at least from the other end,  that another small German club, TSV Landsberg, are to host a pre-season Newcastle match. This is apparently scheduled for the 5,000 capacity Hacker-Pschorr Sports Park and will see United take on AS Monaco, rather than the hosts.

Both Monaco and TSV Landsberg have ‘confirmed’ this will take place on Monday July 16th (6.30pm) but again we await any information from St.James’ Park.

If you fancy the trip, judging by the ‘compact’ look of their ground we’d suggest getting there early doors to get under cover  if you take Newcastle’s rain with you.
