French side SC Bastia have been confirmed as the opponents for the third and final match of Norwich City’s pre-season trip to Italy.


The Canaries will make the short journey across the border to France, and to the neutral venue of the Stade d’Honneur in Sallanches, to face the Ligue Un side managed by former Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele. The game will take place on Friday, July 25.

City’s opponents for their second game in Italy have also changed, with Neil Adams’ side now facing Livorno – after Sampdoria withdrew from the previously agreed fixture. The games date and venue are still to be confirmed.

Norwich will fly out to Turin on Friday, July 18, before playing Novara on the following Sunday at the club’s Chatillon St Vincent training base.

City have said all three kick-off times will be announced shortly.

The Canaries begin their pre-season friendlies at Dereham Town on Saturday.

Norwich City’s 2014-15 pre-season schedule: July 12 – Dereham Town (3pm, Aldiss Park); July 15 – Braintree Town (7.45pm, Amlin Stadium); July 20 – Novara (KO TBC, Chatillon/Saint Vincent); July 23 – Livorno (date, venue TBC); July 25 – SC Bastia (KO TBC, Stade d’Honneur Sallanches); July 28 – OGC Nice (7.45pm, Carrow Road); August 1 – Celta Vigo (7.45pm, Carrow Road).



  • David - despite it's name Chatillon is in Italy ,not France. Take the train from Novara to Turin and then get the train to Aosta. Chatillon is the penultimate stop. Should take about three hours. Sounds idyllic.
