Claudio Ranieri and the Leicester City squad touched down in Austria on Sunday night for an intensive week-long, pre-season training camp.
There are no competitive fixtures for the squad here - the focus is very much on training as manager Claudio Ranieri sets out his agenda and playing style for the new season.
As well as the fitness work, it'll be a chance for the current squad to get to know some of the new arrivals. The team are staying at the hotel below.
Leicester's pre-season fixture list will provide a real test for the Foxes before they embark on their defence of the title. It'll also give an idea on how well they might fare in the Champions League.
Their first game comes on 19th July against Oxford United. After that it becomes a little bit more tricky:-
- 23rd July - A trip North of the border to play Scottish champions Celtic
- 30th July - A long distance flight to Los Angeles to play Paris Saint Germain.
- 3rd August - Back across the pond to take on Spanish champions Barcelona in Stockholm
- 25th August - the draw for the group stage of the Champions League will be made in Monaco.
