Blues to play Cheltenham Town in pre-season

Blues to play Cheltenham Town in pre-season

Blues will travel to Cheltenham Town ahead of our 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

The match against the Robins is the second fixture confirmed in the First Team's pre-season schedule and follows the announcement of a trip to fellow League One outfit Burton Albion.

This will take place at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium on Tuesday 19 July, kick-off 7.45pm.

Incidentally, the first two close-season opponents confirmed, Cheltenham and Burton, finished 15th and 16th respectively in the third tier last term, a campaign that was also preceded by Birmingham City facing Michael Duff's men in Gloucestershire.

Back in the summer of 2021, first-half headers from Gary Gardner and Scott Hogan were added to after the break by Jonathan Leko as Blues ran out 0-3 winners.

Ticket details for the match will be confirmed in due course.

Confirmed pre-season dates:

  • Players return for testing, Monday 20 June
  • Burton Albion v Blues, Saturday 16 July, kick-off 2pm
  • Cheltenham Town v Blues, Tuesday 19 July, kick-off 7.45pm
