FOOTBALL - Coventry City to play German sides Werder Bremen and SV Darmstadt 98 in pre-season friendlies

COVENTRY City will play Bundesliga side Werder Bremen one week before the start of the 2024/25 Championship season.

The Sky Blues host four-time German champions Bremen on Saturday, August 3 with the game to kick-off at 3pm at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Werder finished ninth in the Bundesliga last season and missed out on European football on goal difference.

Bremen are the first overseas team to make the trip to the CBS Arena since Coventry hosted Udinese and Espanyol back in 2007.

That comes after City head to Germany to play SV Darmstadt 98 on Saturday, July 27 at the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor

Darmstadt suffered relegation from the Bundesliga last season following promotion the previous year.




The club will confirm ticket information for both fixtures and a kick-off time for the Darmstadt match in due course.
