Premier League News: Newcastle United will fly to Austria for a training camp and a series of 2022/23 pre-season tour activities. On this occasion, the sultan’s club will try out the strength of two German teams in a test match.
According to the NUFC website, Newcastle United will play 1860 Munich on Friday, 15 July 2022 at the Saalfelden Arena Burgerau. Meanwhile, only three days later they will face FC Mainz 05 in a stadium that only has a capacity of 4.5 thousand people, namely the Kufstein Arena.
1860 Munich is a former champion of the Bundesliga, precisely in the 1965/66 season ago, and was runner-up in the European Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1964/65 season. However, now they only play in the third tier or 3. Liga competition. This is not the first time Newcastle United have played against them, as the two teams had previously met in the 2001 Intertoto Cup, with the Magpies coming out victorious via a 6-3 aggregate score.
While FC Mainz 05 is the club that ended the 2021/22 season by being eighth in the Bundesliga standings. The Magpies have also played against Mainz, in 2017 in a pre-season friendly, but at that time they had to lose 2-1 to the club nicknamed Die Nullfünfer.
Furthermore, Newcastle will also have a test match in pre-season this time against Benfica on 26 July, then Atalanta on 29 July, and finally against Athletic Bilbao a day later.
