Watford will play two friendlies in Austria as part of their pre-season training camp.

The Golden Boys return from their summer break next Monday and will spend the first week near Udine, in Italy.

They will be based just across the border in Austria for the following two weeks and will play two games in as many days in Bad Bleiberg before they return home.

On Saturday, July 12 the Hornets play Russian club and participants in last season's Europa League Rubin Kazan, with kick-off 6pm, and the next day they face German third division side FC Chemnitzer at 5pm.

The club say the full address for the venue will be confirmed in due course.
