Everton have revealed details of their pre-season programme this summer, announcing they will play friendlies in Switzerland and Germany.

The Blues will FC Sion and AS Monaco on Sunday, July 14 and Friday, July 19 respectively, with both games to be played in Bagnes, Switzerland, where Everton will also have a training camp.

Wigan Athletic will also host a pre-season fixture against the Toffees, who will visit the Championship side on Wednesday, July 24 at the DW Stadium.

Everton will also Werder Bremen, who finished eighth in the Bundesliga this season, on Saturday, August 3, one week before the 2019-20 Premier League campaign gets underway.

It will mean a reunion for former Toffee Davy Klaassen, who left Goodison Park for Bremen last summer after a forgettable one-year stay on Merseyside.

This is the second pre-season friendly announcement from Everton so far, having revealed they will travel to Kenya to play Kariobangi Sharks on Saturday, July 7.

Everton also announced they will be taking part in a European tournament over the weekend of July 27-28, with details to be confirmed later this week.

There is, as yet, no news on a pre-season fixture to be played at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile, Marco Silva’s side will receive the fixture list for the new Premier League season tomorrow (Thursday, June 13) morning at 9am BST.
