Oxford United are pleased to confirm that this summer’s pre-season tour will be heading for Ireland.
Over the last few years United have been to Austria, Spain and Portugal and hundreds of fans have come along to join the Yellow Army on tour.
This season Karl Robinson’s new look squad will be flying out to the Republic of Ireland for an intensive training camp that will include three games; two in and around Dublin and one around 90 minutes from the capital.
The dates for the diary are the three match dates:
Monday 9th July
Tuesday 10th July
Wednesday 11th July
All three games will be evening kick-offs and full details of the opposition will be announced soon, once formalities are completed.
Karl told us:
“I have heard so much about the Oxford fans travelling in numbers for pre-season and I hope they enjoy a trip to Dublin. It’s a beautiful part of the World, brilliant people and I am sure the fans will have a great time.
“It’s an important time for us as we prepare for the season and we will be going out there a week earlier for a full week of training. Everyone will then get game time in the three matches. The facilities are first class and because of the distance it’s easy for us to fly people in to join the party if we make new signings, and to stay in touch 24/7 with what’s happening at the club back home.
“We are just putting the final touches to the pre-season schedule now but there are some exciting games and we hope the trip to Ireland sees the Yellow Army giving us great backing once again.”
