Athletic Announce Preseason Friendly Against Logroñés On 29 August At Las Gaunas
This week the Athletic first team will officially begin preseason training. Players will undergo medical over the next few days with everyone scheduled to report back to Lezama on Thursday to start training. With just one month until the La Liga season kicks off, the Zurigorri won’t have long to prepare.
Friendly matches will likely be more important than ever before and the club has been working diligently to put games on the summer schedule. Just a few days ago Athletic announced that Alavés will visit Lezama on 2 August, which could be the final friendly before the La Liga season begins, and a second exhibition has now been added to the calendar.
Athletic confirmed on Sunday that the team will play a friendly against UD Logroñés on 29 August at Las Gaunas. Logroñés have competed in the Segunda B since the club was re-founded in 2009, but earned promotion last season and will spend the upcoming campaign in the Second Division for the first time.
