Seasiders Add Manchester City Game To Pre-Season Schedule
An additional game has been added to Blackpool’s pre-season schedule, with the Seasiders to face Premier League champions Manchester City in a behind-closed-doors friendly.
The match against the five-time title winners, who also lifted their fourth successive Carabao Cup trophy last season, will take place at City’s Academy Stadium on Tuesday 3 August, kick-off 6pm.
On facing Pep Guardiola’s side, Neil Critchley said:
“There’s no better test than going to play against Manchester City. They’ll have top, top quality players playing and I’m sure our players and staff will be looking forward to it.
“We obviously lost the Rangers game from our pre-season so we could do with an extra game.
“It will be good to give the players some more minutes in their legs, and I’m sure they will feel it playing against Manchester City!”
Further details regarding the streaming of the fixture will be announced shortly.
