Hull City boss Phil Brown expects to do the bulk of preseason training in Beijing during their Asian Trophy campaign.
"When we come back from Beijing we'll have one (friendly) definitely and possibly a second," said Brown.
"That is all in the lead up to our second season in the Barclays Premier League and that is something that seems to roll nicely off the tongue.
"We're all looking forward to the season with renewed confidence. We took an awful lot of criticism towards the end of last season.
"However, the slate is wiped clean now and hopefully by the time we get to August 15th we'll have recharged our batteries and got ourselves back to the fitness levels required to hit the ground running again where the Barclays Premier League is concerned."
