Brentford to face Southampton in pre-season friendly

The Bees will play The Saints at Griffin Park in July

30 May 2017

Brentford will host Premier League side Southampton as part of the pre-season schedule for the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship campaign. The match will take place on Saturday 22 July, kick-off 3pm. The announcement confirms that The Bees now have four pre-season friendlies in place, with Aldershot Town, Oxford United and MK Dons also on the list.

A final day defeat to Stoke City saw The Saints finish eighth in the Premier League table last season. Manager Claude Puel was appointed as boss almost a year ago, after Ronald Koeman left to join Everton. The last time the two sides met for a competitive fixture was in League One in April 2011, The Saints going on to win 3-0 en route to promotion back to the Championship. Earlier that season, Brentford had beaten them on their own turf 2-0, the goals coming from Gary Alexander and Charlie MacDonald.

Further match and ticketing information will be announced closer to the fixture.
