The Canaries will open their pre-season at non league Lowestoft Town on July 8 before wrapping up against ex-boss Chris Hughton’s Brighton at Carrow Road on July 29.

The opening trip to Crown Meadow fulfils last summer’s postponed fixture for Blues’ stalwart Micky Chapman’s testimonial, which was washed out after the Canaries had already arrived at the Ryman Premier Division club.

City then travel to Stevenage on Tuesday, July 11 (7:45pm) before visiting League Two Cambridge United on Saturday, July 15 (2pm). The Us have confirmed the format will be similar to the 2015 friendly between the clubs, with an additional 30 minutes of playing time and the game split into four quarters.

Following a week-long training camp, with final details still to be finalised, they return to England to take on Charlton at The Valley on Tuesday, July 25 (7:45pm) ahead of their final match of pre-season taking place at Carrow Road on Saturday, July 29 when City host the newly-promoted Seagulls. The new Football League season is scheduled to start on the weekend of August 5.

Ticketing information will be released in due course, with fixtures subject to change.

  • Agree with Trevor Keith. Isn't Hoolahan due a testimonial this year? Decent opponents wanted for that one.

  • I suspect we will see at least one more game at home added to the list once a new Head Coach has been appointed. Perhaps a German team for example.

  • I would have preferred some overseas opposition at Carrow Road but in preparation terms Brighton are probably a top end Championship team which is the standard we will have to be at for the new season.
