Newcastle United are en route to New Zealand to take part in the Football United Tour

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Newcastle United are en route to New Zealand to take part in the Football United Tour.

Manager Alan Pardew has named a 24-man party for the tour, where the squad will be based in Dunedin and Wellington over the course of ten days.

The Magpies will face Sydney FC on Tuesday, 22nd July (7.30pm kick-off local time) at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, in Dunedin, before taking on Wellington Phoenix at the Westpac Stadium, in Wellington, on Saturday 26th July (4.30pm kick-off local time).

There are places for four of United's summer signings - Emmanue Riviere, Siem de Jong, Jack Colback and Ayoze Perez, while youngsters Adam Armstrong, Rolando Aarons, Freddie Woodman and Lubo Satka have also been included.

Cheick Tiote, who has been on an extended summer break after representing Ivory Coast at the World Cup, will join up with the squad later in the week.

As always, nufc.co.uk is the only place to come for in-depth coverage of United, be it at home or abroad.

Interviews, photos, previews, updates, reports and reaction from throughout the tour will be across the website and our other digital platforms, including Twitter (@NUFC), Facebook (facebook.com/newcastleunited) and YouTube (youtube.com/nufcofficial1892).

Unfortunately, there will be no nufcTV coverage while in New Zealand, but we will still provide plenty of exclusive content and images that will be unavailable elsewhere.
