Norwich City have confirmed friendlies against Maccabi Haifa and FC Augsburg later this month as part of their Premier League build-up.
The German Europa League hopefuls revealed last week Alex Neil's squad were poised to face the Bundesliga outfit on Saturday, July 25 and City officials confirmed on Monday a scheduled game in Prien am Chiemsee (2pm kick-off CET) on that date, before returning to the UK later the same day.
The Canaries will spend a week in the German Alps after opening domestic friendlies against Gorleston, Hitchin and Cambridge United.
Neil's squad will fly out to their training base in Grassau, southern Germany on Saturday, July 18 before crossing the border to Austria to take on Israeli outfit Maccabi Haifa, at the Kufstein-Arena in Kufstein on Monday, July 20 (6.30pm CET).
Haifa is one of Israel's most recognisable club sides and have their national title 12 times. They finished fifth in the Israeli Premier League table in 2014/15.
