Birmingham City can confirm plans for the club’s 2014/15 pre-season schedule.

Blues will return to the Fota Island Resort in Cork, having spent time at the 5 star complex three years ago under Chris Hughton.

The squad will head to the Republic of Ireland on Sunday 6 July before undergoing an intense, private training camp until Saturday 12 July. A fixture during the week-long stay will be confirmed later this week.

The Fota Island Resort has a top class training facility situated within its grounds and regularly plays host to professional sports teams. For more information, visit: www.fotaisland.ie.

Blues have also confirmed a further two first-team pre-season games during July. Lee Clark’s side will face Sky Bet League Two side Mansfield Town at the One Call Stadium on Saturday 19 July (3pm kick-off) before travelling to Meadow Lane to take on Notts County, of Sky Bet League One, on Tuesday 29 July (7.30pm kick-off).

Elsewhere, Blues’ development squad will travel to Park Hall Stadium to face Welsh outfit The New Saints on Wednesday 6 August (7.45pm kick-off).
