Following their stay in South Africa, City will head to Hong Kong to compete in the bi-annual Premier League Asia Trophy alongside Sunderland and Tottenham.

City then take on AC Milan in the Audi Cup before completing their pre-season programme with a trip to Helsinki on August 10 to face Arsenal.
