Everton will wrap up their pre-season programme with a friendly against Portuguese side Sporting CP while a trip to nearby Wigan Athletic has also been confirmed.

While an Everton XI will face Tranmere on Saturday 22nd July, the first team will travel to the DW Stadium to play the Latics.

Then, after the game at Stoke on 29th July, the Blues will play Sporting at Goodison Park a week before the 2023-24 Premier League season kicks off with a home game against Fulham.

Sporting finished fourth in Portugal’s Primeira Liga this past season and reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

A decent side for the last preseason game. No injuries please.

An opportunity to welcome a new board and a new striker. Possibly.

Looks like a decent pre season set up. No long flights and local games so not much traveling. Can really get stuck in and get these players ready.

I thought that Wigan were facing a winding up order from HRMC on 26 July. Will this game go ahead?

Is it a good idea for us to show up at Wigan if HRMC are sniffing around given that our financial investigation is apparently tied to reporting of taxes?

Wigan have just been bought by a local business man. So the game will go ahead.

Just had a text to say the Tranmere game has been canceled!

Maybe we can play Chester and try to get revenge for that game at Finch Farm a few months ago?

Can't see the point of pre-season games.

They haven't done us much good in recent seasons but I suppose fitness is the goal although we always start the season with injuries anyway.

Good opposition. I doubt they think the same.
