Three more pre-season friendlies have been revealed by Newcastle United.

A behind closed doors friendly against Gateshead on Saturday 9 July (only 10 days time!), Newcastle United then heading off to Austria for a pre-season training camp.

That trip to include friendlies against Bundesliga club Mainz 05 and 1860 Munich, who currently play in the German third tier.

Newcastle United official announcement:

‘Newcastle United will face two German opponents in Austria next month as part of their preparations for the upcoming 2022/23 Premier League campaign.

After taking on neighbours Gateshead – fresh from their promotion to the National League and managed by former Magpies defender Mike Williamson – in a behind-closed-doors friendly at the Newcastle United Training Centre on Saturday, 9th July, Eddie Howe’s side will travel to Austria for a week-long training camp.

This will include a friendly against 1860 Munich on Friday, 15th July (kick-off 6pm local time) at the picturesque SaalfeldenArena Bürgerau and a clash with Mainz 05 on Monday, 18th July (kick-off 5pm local time) at the 4,500-capacity Kufstein Arena.

1860 Munich are former champions of Germany who were runners-up in the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1964/65, but currently play in the third tier of German football, 3. Liga. The two sides met in the Intertoto Cup in 2001, with Newcastle winning 6-3 on aggregate over two legs.

Mainz 05, meanwhile, finished eighth in Bundesliga last term. United played against them in a pre-season friendly in the summer of 2017, losing 2-1. Ticket details for both games will be confirmed very shortly.

The club have already confirmed an away friendly against Benfica on Tuesday, 26th July (kick-off 8pm local time) before a home double-header against Atalanta on Friday, 29th July (kick-off 7.45pm BST) and Athletic Bilbao the following day, which United can now announce will kick off at 3pm (BST).
