The first tie is an away day trip to our local rivals Preston, taking place on 31st July. Preston having been demoted this season, will have a very much chopped and changed side to those in recent years, and it will be interesting to see how the club is holding up.
The second tie is a bigger tie (no offense to Preston), the game will be against Spanish giants Villarreal on Sunday the 4th July. It will be a game worth getting down to watch and see the fourth biggest side in Spanish football to face the Latics.
It will be the only pre-season game to be played out at the DW Stadium, but it is a big difference to fixtures in the past few seasons (St Mirren and Real Zarogozza).
