Everton Under-21s will get a taste of the top-flight on Bank Holiday Monday when they head to the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City are next up for Alan Stubbs' side in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League, with the stadium the first of several famous grounds the young Blues will visit this term.
With future fixtures at St. James' Park, the Hawthorns, the Reebok Stadium and Ewood Park - as well as hosting three games at Goodison - Everton's second string will gain invaluable experience on some of the country's best pitches thanks to the new competition format.
And having started the season with a 2-0 victory at Wolves followed by a 2-1 home defeat to West Ham, the Blues will be looking to get back to winning ways against the Citizens.
Kick-off is set for 1pm, with admission priced at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.
