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.

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
