Ajax Lined Up For Pre-Season Opener

Coventry City are to play Ajax Amsterdam at Highfield Road as a curtain-raiser to the new Premiership season.

They will welcome the Dutch team to the city as part of a series of pre-season friendlies, but so far it is the only home fixture announced.

Other games planned include trips to Wolves, Portsmouth and Belgian team KKA Gent.

The match in Belgium, with the club that produced Cedric Roussel and Laurent Delorge, will take place on 5 August at 8pm. Other games are likely to be pencilled in for the trip to the Euro 2000 hosts.

The other matches were arranged as part of transfer deals when the Sky Blues signed new players.

Wolves will host Coventry City at Molineux. The trip is on 26 July at 7.45pm in a game agreed when Steve Froggatt switched clubs.

The seaside clash with Portsmouth, arranged as part of John Aloisiís move, will take place on 29 July.
