Does anyone know if (and when) there are any English Clubs playing pre-season games in The Algarve again this summer?

You could try to follow   http://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/forum/gforum.cgi?forum=32;
which lists just about all games ... unfortunately, only by individual date, so you have to check them all.

Cubsur usually gets wind of anything in the Algarve ...

The first I knew...from the local English news.... that Boro were playing for definite pre-season last year was about 2 weeks before the first game.
€10 to watch at Ferreiras free at Vila Real De Santo Antonio. 
I think the Ferreiras lot knew there was several hundred Oxford fans attending and decided to make a killing.

They won't normally confirm the pre-season games until the ink is dry on the contracts. I haven't anything yet, but will update as and when information becomes available.

Ferreiras did indeed charge €10 which is the most I have heard of for any pre season game. Most are €5 if that. 'Training games' have to be free if clubs are going to use multiple subs, UEFA and FA rule apparently.

Algarve league games are €2,50 ie not even the price of a pint.

I shall keep my eyes and ears open as to venues and opposition, but any info gratefully received. As I said , it's often hard to pin down details until almost the last moment.

I will be here as it's the last few days of the World Cup, so not going anywhere until that's ended.

I will add that all these games will be at night because of the heat. Unless you are staying within walking distance or sensible taxi distance of the venues (when announced) you will need a car as local transport stops at around 8pm.

Wrexham AFC are returning in July. They are playing Louletano at Stadio Algarve on 11th May. We are expecting 500+ fans to make the trip. Similar to last July.

Our games over there have now been confirmed. The Club's official website says....

News of the fixture comes after the Tigers last week confirmed that they will play two games in Portugal as part of a week-long training camp on The Algarve.

Admission prices have now been confirmed for the games against C.S. Maritimo and S.C. Braga on Tuesday 10th and Friday 13th July respectively. Entry to Estadio da Nora in Albufeira, the venue for both matches, will be priced €10 for adults and €5 for U16s. Please note that tickets will not be available in advance of these fixtures.

Roll on July! Smile

Estadio da Nora is in Ferreiras, about 3 miles outside Albufeira. Easy to get to by car, taxi or bus. Both games ko at 7pm / 1900hrs

(What if England should be in a World Cup semi final that same night??)

On the other hand there is NO public transport of any kind at the Algarve Stadium for Wrexham v Louletano, so you must make your own arrangements to travel from any resort town. Many of the airport transfer minibus companies are able to take bookings for an out and back. That one Wednesday, 11th July 2018 with a 7pm kick-off

I can offer transport suggestions should you wish.
