The club has announced that Everton will play in the Dresden Cup, a pre-season tournament, on 29 and 30 July, together with Real Betis, Werder Bremen and hosts Dynamo Dresden.
The Blues will play two matches in the Dresden Cup, which takes place on Friday 29 July and Saturday 30 at the 32,000-capacity DDV-Stadium.
After Werder Bremen play Real Betis, Everton will face hosts Dynamo Dresden from Germany's second tier on the Friday night (8:30pm CET/7:30pm BST) in the second game of the tournament and then face either Bremen or Betis on Saturday afternoon (1:30pm CET/12:30pm BST).
Everton says tickets will go on sale from Wednesday, 18 May with pricing and further details to be announced.
Betis, Everton's friendly opponents at Goodison in August 2013, are on course for a mid-table finish in La Liga this season while Bremen third from bottom in the Bundesliga.
Dresden have just won promotion as Champions of Germany's third tier and will be back in Bundesliga 2 for 2016-17.

Still, it gets us on the slate, and as Patrick Murphy pointed out elsewhere, Everton playing in Germany on the 50th Anniversary of England winning the World Cup!!! All eyes will be on us!!!

Like the former East European greats like Honved, Ferencvaros, Hadjuk Split, Dukla Prague etc...they've all fallen on hard times which is a shame.

You brought back some great memories...

We failed to capitalise and the quality of tournaments have plummeted. Still as long as we're not touring Scotland or the lower leagues.

Good god, you have a memory, Colin.

Grasshoppers of Zurich, Young Boys of Berne, Royal Antwerp, Eintracht Frankfurt, Vitoria Setubal, Cagliari, Crusaders, TS 1860 Munich, VFB Stuttgart etc.... These were the type of teams you could meet in the early stages of European competition. They weren't very good but they added colour and intrigue unlike now were everything is about money and 'the brand'.

TV (money) pretty much ruined the magic of Cup competition where almost everybody had their chance. Wonder when they'll start make finals a best-of-two event.

Money rules the world. Especially football.

At least it's tournament football.

No doubt there will be other fixtures to come too.

Seriously, I hate them for knocking us out of the Uefa Cup in 1977.
Srdjan, the Uefa Cup used to best of two legs, home and away. Only changed to a one-off game in recent years.
Anyone remember some of them Polish teams, right gobfulls. Apologies for the attempt at spelling: Gornik Zabre, Widzew Lodz, Wisla Krakow... and others I can't even begin to take a punt at with a hangover.

Loved the great old Eurpean team names. For the life of me I can't remember many of the other teams I managed with the exceptions of Suttgart (got them promoted one year), Dinamo Tibilisi, Lodz, Locomotiv Plovdiv, Honved and of course Red Star of Belgrade. Used to really dislike Ujpest Dosza and Ferencvaros with a passion becuase they were Bob's "Barcelona". Happy days though. ("Nurse, my meds please!").
Anyhoo thanks for the travel tips and definitely going and will (hopefully) watch the game in the Dresden end (under the watchful eye of "Willy" one of the Dresden Massive).

Thinking specifically about a keeper.
