The venue for Ipswich Town’s pre-season friendly against German club Paderborn 07 has finally been confirmed.
The Blues take on the newly-promoted Bunesliga side next Saturday (July 6) towards the start of their 11-day training camp.
The game will now be played at the Stadion Laumeskamp - home to German sixth-tier side Delbrucker SC - with kick-off time remaining at 3pm CET (4pm UK).
Norwich City played at that venue last summer when facing FC Union Berlin.
Paderborn play their home games at the 15,000 capacity Benteler Arena but are not using the stadium during pre-season.
Town fly out to Germany next Thursday and finish their trip by taking part in the four-team Interwetten Cup, in Meppen, on Sunday, July 14.
