Stoke City will officially restart their Championship campaign on Saturday, December 10th when the club takes on Cardiff City. Before that though, The Potters will hold two friendlies in advance of the regular season starting up again.
One of those friendlies will take place next Friday, December 2nd as Stoke City take on Nottingham Forest. That friendly against Forest will take place at The Loughborough University Stadium.
Per the team’s website, Stoke City will also hold another friendly behind closed doors at some point before play resumes as well.
Although the team has been training in Dubai, both friendlies will represent additional opportunities for Stoke City gel again as a unit on the pitch — Something that The Potters will definitely need to ensure, as a smooth restart to the Championship season is crucial for the club.
