The Britannia Stadium will play host to a high-profile friendly for the first time in four years just a week before the Potters open their Premier League campaign against Liverpool at Anfield.

"We were approached by a number of European clubs about the possibility of playing at the Britannia Stadium once we made it clear we would be staging a pre-season game at home," chief executive Tony Scholes told the club's official website.

"Mark Hughes felt that Genoa would provide the right test at this stage of our build-up."

The game will be preceded by a trip to face Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground on August 4.
