Norwich City will begin their preparations for the Premier League season at National League neighbours King's Lynn Town on July 16. (KO 7pm)

The Canaries have confirmed Daniel Farke's squad will make the short trip to The Walks for their first friendly of the summer.

The Linnets have enjoyed recent success under former City defender Ian Culverhouse and spent last season in the top tier of the non league game.

The Canaries confirmed in announcing the Linnets' date a further update on potential admission details for the fixture will follow, in line with continued government updates on the return of spectators to live outdoor events.

Farke previously took a squad featuring the likes of Teemu Pukki and Max Aarons to west Norfolk in 2018.

That is followed by two behind-closed-doors friendlies against Football League opposition at the club’s Colney training base. 

League One Lincoln City will be the visitors on July 20 (KO 2:30pm), with a double header planned against Championship club Huddersfield three days later at the same venue (KOs noon and 2:15pm).
