Preparation for the new season for any football club is very important. Embedding in new players, learning new tactics and improving fitness levels all need to be done before the start of a gruelling domestic season. With the European Championships in France ending on July 10, players will return to their respective clubs later than usual meaning preparation is not ideal.

With increased globalisation and marketing by clubs around the world, many pre-season competitions take place in countries such as the United States, Thailand and Australia to promote the beautiful English game.

Reigning Premier League champions Leicester City will take part in the International Champions Cup competition where all the biggest and best teams in world football take part in and prepare for the new season.

So, who will Leicester face over pre-season before that first clash with newly-promoted Hull on August 13?
