Norwich City can confirm that they will be travelling to Sweden for their pre-season tour this summer.

City will fly out on Friday, July 18 with their first match scheduled against Swedish second division side Ahlafors IF on Saturday, July 19. Norwich have played Ahlafors on a previous tour to Scandinavia back in August 1984, when Ken Brown's Canaries drew 2-2.

The last fixture of this tour will be against first division team Falkenbergs FF on Tuesday, July 22.

Venues and kick-off times for both games are still to be confirmed and will be announced in due course.

City boss Glenn Roeder commenting on the tour said: "I have been to Scandinavia many times both as a player and manager as part of pre-season preparations and found it to be a fantastic place to prepare for the season ahead. The facilities are top class - particularly in Sweden."
