Man City announce preseason friendly against French partners Troyes

Manchester City have announced a preseason friendly against French partners Troyes.

Guardiola's Premier League champions will travel to France to face the Ligue 2 title-holders on Saturday 31 July.

Troyes became the 10th City Football Group club in September 2020 and went on to lift the Ligue 2 title later that season. Promotion to the top tier of French football ended a three-year absence for the 2001 UEFA Intertoto Cup winners.

CFG chief executive Ferran Soriano told City's website: “We are delighted to confirm this meeting of two City Football Group clubs.

“ESTAC had an amazing season since it joined the City Football Group. We look forward to having this opportunity to meet in person and in Troyes to continue exchanging knowledge and experiences between ESTAC and Manchester City. We are also looking forward meeting with the Troyes fans and everybody connected to the club, to continue developing our family relationship.

“The game will provide a competitive environment on the field for both teams to continue their preparations for the season. We expect a vibrant game and a fantastic spectacle."
