Blues To Face Celta Vigo

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton will face Celta Vigo at Tranmere on 6 August.

Roberto Martinez’s Blues will continue their pre-season schedule with a clash with the La Liga outfit at Prenton Park (7.45pm).

Celta Vigo finished in the top half of the Spanish league last season and will provide an additional challenge for Martinez’s men as they prepare for domestic and European campaigns.

The Spaniards' quality was underlined when they beat eventual Champions League winners Real Madrid at the end of last season to end their title hopes. Indeed, their manager Luis Enrique left earlier this summer to take the reins at Barcelona.

The game is taking place at Prenton Park as the Blues are committed to one pre-season at Goodison Park to ensure the playing surface is in optimum condition for the first Premier League game of the season and additional stadium work can be completed for the new campaign. Everton’s only pre-season fixture at Goodison will be against FC Porto on 3 August.

Tickets for the Celta Vigo game are priced at £20 for adults and £10 for juniors and OAPs. More information will be confirmed in due course.

The match follows the confirmation of games against Tranmere (22 July), Leicester City (in Thailand, 27 July), FC Porto (3 August) and SC Paderborn (9 August).
