Albion confirm PSG pre-season friendly

Baggies will face European giants PSG on Wednesday, July 13

ALBION have added a high-profile friendly against Paris St Germain at the end of the Club's forthcoming pre-season trip to the Austrian Alps.

The Baggies will face the big-spending French champions on Wednesday, July 13 (ko 6pm, 5pm UK).

The fixture will take place at the Schladming Athletic Area, the same stadium Albion utilised last year when they played Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg.

Tickets will be available at the stadium on matchday.

PSG are certain to provide a stern summer test having last season enjoyed a record-breaking domestic treble while also reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.

The French giants, who on Tuesday confirmed former Sevilla boss Unai Emery as their new manager, are in the same region as Albion to begin their own fitness programme ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Their squad will be missing many of their Euro 2016 stars while Head Coach Tony Pulis will wait to assess his group of tournament internationals before deciding whether they join the Baggies on this leg of the pre-season schedule.

Albion, whose first team report back for training on July 4, head for the remote Alpine village of Irdning three days later to begin their training in earnest.

The Austria trip and game against PSG will be followed by Albion's appearance in a four-team tournament in Holland involving hosts Vitesse Arnhem, PSV Eindhoven and Porto.
