Juventus’ summer preparations for next season will involve a short trip to Hong Kong, where they will take on South China on 30 July.
The friendly match, which sees the most successful sides in Italy and the Asian city respectively pit their wits against one another, follows on directly from the Bianconeri’s appearance in the International Champions Cup in Melbourne, where they meet Melbourne Victory and Tottenham Hotspur.
This will be the first time that Juventus make the journey to Hong Kong since 2008, when the team, managed then by Claudio Ranieri, took on the same opponents that lie in wait again this time around.
“We are excited to be returning to Hong Kong, especially to play against a strong, traditional side like South China,” said Giorgio Ricci, Head of Global Partnerships and Corporate Revenues at Juventus.
“The fixture represents another important stage in our pre-season campaign, forming the perfect next step following the International Champions Cup in Australia.”
He concluded: “We look forward to returning to Hong Kong to entertain the many Juventus supporters in the city. I am sure that the match will be an exciting one for the local football fans and a highlight of their summer.”
Ticket prices for Juve’s game against South China range from 300 to 680 Hong Kong dollars with discount rates of 180 Hong Kong dollars for students and seniors.
Supporters will be able to purchase tickets from Thursday 23 June via the local ticketing provider Cityline.
