Addicks host Aberdeen at The Valley

Aberdeen friendly

Charlton will host Aberdeen, who finished third in the Scottish Premiership this season, at The Valley in a pre-season friendly on Saturday, July 29th (1pm KO BST)

The top-three finish for the Scottish side means the former UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup winners will play in Europe next season, either in the UEFA Europe League or the UEFA Conference League depending on results elsewhere.

Tickets for the game at The Valley will go on sale in June, with Charlton season ticket holders entitled to a discount on match tickets as part of this year's season ticket benefits.

Manager Dean Holden said: “Our pre-season preparations have to put us in a position to start the season well. I’m really pleased that our final game of pre-season will be a good test for us at The Valley against an Aberdeen side who will be preparing for a European campaign as well as another challenging domestic season.

"Whenever I think of Aberdeen, I think of the success Sir Alex Ferguson had there. They are a huge club with a big history, so it will be a special occasion and importantly a good way to get us ready for the season ahead."

CEO Peter Storrie said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming Aberdeen to The Valley in July. They have had a fantastic season and should prove an excellent challenge for us in our final game before the start of the 2023/24 season.”

Meanwhile, the club can confirm that the pre-season friendly against Leyton Orient in Spain scheduled for Friday, July 14th, will take place at the Marbella Football Center in the Malaga region.
