Southampton will travel to Derby for a pre-season friendly at Pride Park Stadium on Saturday 21st July (3pm BST kick-off).

The fixture takes place eight days after Saints return from their two-week trip to China, and lands three weeks before the club’s Premier League opener at home to Burnley.

The Rams finished sixth in the Championship last season before losing out to Fulham in the play-off semi-finals, 2-1 on aggregate.

Derby have since appointed Frank Lampard as their new manager after Gary Rowett departed for Stoke.

Saints last met the East Midlands outfit in the 2011/12 promotion season. Rickie Lambert was on target in a 1-1 draw at Pride Park, before Saints ran out 4-0 winners in the return fixture at St Mary’s.

Tickets for the friendly clash are priced as follows:

Adults: £15
65+ and Under-18s: £10
Ages 2-12: £5

Information on sales procedures will be announced in due course.
