German club Hannover will provide the final opposition of Norwich City's pre-season programme, in a Carrow Road friendly on Saturday, July 30.
Hannover finished bottom of the Bundesliga last season to suffer top-flight relegation, just as the Canaries did.
The north German club appointed former player Daniel Stendel as head coach in April but saw 14 consecutive seasons in Germany's top flight come to an end.
With other friendlies against League One clubs Walsall, Peterborough and Coventry already confirmed it just leaves two remaining matches to be confirmed, for City to take on during their training camp in Austria.
Matches on July 20 and July 23 against 'top European opposition' are still to be confirmed but the majority of the Canaries' pre-season plans have now been confirmed.
