Bournemouth will host a pre-season tournament at their newly-named Seward Stadium next month. The EC Group Cup will take place over the weekend of July 16/17, with participating teams to be revealed on Friday.

The Cherries sold the naming rights to Dean Court at the end of last season and the ground will become the Seward Stadium from July 1.

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury told BBC Radio Dorset: "I can't think of a better way to prepare for the season ahead.

"This will provide us with a unique challenge, a trophy and something to fight for at a time when other teams will be going through the motions.

"We are really looking forward to what will be a fun, but testing addition to our pre-season schedule."
