In previous years I have created a thread similar to this to enable all Albion pre-season matches to be collated in one place (the added benefit of having the NSC hive mind flag up obscure fixtures I would never otherwise have heard about is, of course, purely coincidental).

In July we will have the novelty* of Albion matches on US soil (for our American cousins reading this, the Brighton Seagulls will be participating in Spring Training :thumbsup: ).
*Of course, if you remember the Albion tour to the West Coast in May 1979 then I salute you, you old git.

Please, please, please reply to this thread with details of any pre-season Albion friendly fixtures you have come across and I will periodically update the listing.
(Kick-off times are local)

Saturday July 22 Kick-off: 7:00pm v Chelsea (Venue: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia)

Naylor was tweeting that there will be ONE pre-season friendly for the first team on home soil, at the Amex, over Pride weekend. He didn't say which day, or know the opposition. It's the weekend before the PL kicks off again.

Will Summer Series matches be broadcast?​

NBC Sports is the exclusive broadcaster in the USA.

Further broadcast information for all other regions will be announced here in due course.

Does anyone know if the PL "summer series' is going to be on TV in the UK ? I've not seen any talk of UK rights etc but might have missed it.

Has anybody heard of any additional pre-season games that the U-21s (or U-18s) will play? I'm surprised that only one fixture for the U-21s has so far come to light.

I believe the first-team players will start to report back for pre-season training next Monday (depending upon their international involvement over the last couple of weeks or so). I haven't heard anything about a training camp this summer - are they likely to fold that into the US trip? They probably won't be jetting off to Europe somewhere and then almost immediately heading off to the States, will they?

I’m guessing the camp will be in the USA

Nothing on the PL website about UK TV at all. US rights have been sold so there will be streams available though

Naylor in the Athletic (i think) suggested that there aside from the Summer Series x 3 games in the States and then the pre season Amex friendly on the 4/5/6th - there would be no other friendlies for the adult team (perhaps a behind closed doors one ? as well ) .
Yep. I guess they are back on Monday - training - so presumably tomorrow/Friday - they will be in to check in re: fitness check ups etc. thats normally how they've played it before.
