Norwich City have confirmed their pre-season schedule, with trips to King’s Lynn, Lincoln, Luton and Charlton all in the mix.
Pre-season begins with a local game at King’s Lynn Town on Friday, July 6 (7.30pm) before a trip to League Two side Lincoln City the following Tuesday, at Sincil Bank at 7.45pm.
A behind-closed-doors game against another fourth tier team, Crawley Town, follows at Colney on Thursday, July 12 (5pm) ahead of Daniel Farke’s squad heading on tour to Germany.
Although full details of the tour are yet to be confirmed Paderborn and Union Berlin have announced they are playing the Canaries on Sunday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 17 respectively.
With no Carrow Road friendly games during pre-season due to the pitch being relaid another two away games are scheduled for when City return to England.
League One new boys Luton Town will host Norwich at Kenilworth Road on Wednesday, July 25 (7.45pm) and pre-season concludes against Charlton Athletic at the Valley on Saturday, July 28 (3pm).
Farke took his team to Charlton in pre-season last year and won 2-0 thanks to goals from Yanic Wildschut and Steven Naismith, with the Addicks going on to finish sixth in the third tier and lose in the play-offs.
The new Championship campaign is due to begin on the weekend of Saturday, August 4.
