Dates for pre-season tour confirmed

City will visit Marbella in July for a pre-season training camp, as their preparations for the 2018/19 campaign continue.

Lee Johnson and his coaching staff will put their charges through some warm weather training between July 15th and 22nd.

Johnson’s squad plan to face two opposition during the week-long camp in southern Spain.

The head coach has just returned from a four-day stay at the Marbella camp - the club’s training base in July - to ensure all the required facilities are available for his side to step up their training.

Johnson told bcfc.co.uk: “The facility we will be staying at is fantastic. Everything is there that we require and it will be an excellent week, I’m already looking forward to it.

“We are hoping to have two demanding fixtures out there, which will assist our preparation for the start of the season.

“As with last year, we will be hosting a Q&A session at the resort and it would be brilliant to see as many supporters there as possible.

“Marbella is a beautiful place and it’s a great opportunity for the fans to show their support as the players are put through some warm weather training.”

Fans will also have the opportunity to get closer to the team, with a three-day executive package on offer to supporters, including the chance to interact with coaches and players, enjoy golf in the Spanish sun and partake in a gala dinner.

Anybody interested should email Ashton Gate Stadium's managing director Mark Kelly - mark.kelly@ashtongate.co.uk.

The club will announce further details in due course.
