Norwich City to play Mexican side Club Dorados de Sinaloa on USA tour
Norwich City have confirmed their first fixture in a three-game USA summer tour will be against Mexican side Club Dorados de Sinaloa in Sacramento on July 18.
The Canaries will then face MLS sides San Jose Earthquakes on July 20 and Portland Timbers on July 24.
City are due to fly out to California on Monday, July 15 before their first fixture takes place in Sacramento on Thursday, July 18. Sacramento have recently launched a new professional club called Sac Pro Soccer, and City are part of a special Sacramento Soccer Day being held to mark the new club's start to life in the Californian state capital.
Graham Smith, technical director of Sac Pro Soccer said: 'The game will give Sacramento soccer fans the opportunity to see two distinct styles of football - the short passing, inventive Latino style against the more direct physical approach from the English Premier League.'
City's next game will be on Saturday, July 20 against Darren Huckerby's former club San Jose Earthquakes at their Buck Shaw Stadium. The final game of the tour will see City travel north from California to Oregon, where they will take on Portland Timbers at the Jeld Wen Field on Wednesday, July 24.
