May 23 2019



Crystal Palace will play two pre-season games in Switzerland this July, as part of preparations for the 2019/20 Premier League season.

The two games will be part of the Uhrencup, which Wolverhampton Wanderers won last pre-season. 4 teams will take part: FC Luzern, BSC Young Boys, Eintracht Frankfurt, and the Eagles.

Palace will face FC Luzern at the Tissot Arena in Bienne on Tuesday 9th July 2019 (KO 20:00 CEST/ 19:00 BST), and BSC Young Boys at Stadium Neufeld in Bern on Saturday 13th July 2019 (KO 15:00 CEST/ 14:00 BST).

The winner of the tournament will be the club who picks up the most points over 2 games (Palace won't play against Eintracht Frankfurt).

Roy Hodgson told the "I am very pleased that the club has opted for this tour to Switzerland. This is a very traditional tournament in these parts and with Young Boys and FC Luzern here, we will be playing against two local but difficult opponents who will challenge us."

Palace have previously announced other pre-season fixtures against Bristol City (27 July, Ashton Gate) and Hertha Berlin (3 August, Selhurst Park) - with more fixtures to be announced soon.
