Auxerre to visit Ninian Park
Cardiff City are to entertain top French club Auxerre in a pre-season friendly later this month.
Auxerre have agreed to visit Ninian Park on Friday, July 28, with the match completing the Bluebirds pre-season match campaign following their four-game tour to North America.
Cardiff had initially agreed to play Roma, but that fixture had to be scrapped because of the match-fixing row in Italy.
Although Roma aren't involved they could be thrust into European Champions League football if other clubs are found guilty and be forced to quickly re-arrange their programme.
Cardiff have worked to find a quality replacement and Auxerre, who finished fifth in the French League last season, are currently in the InterToto Cup.
