The Bianconeri will return to China for the first time in eight years. They will be taking on South China AA as part of their preseason. This is a preseason that already has the Old Lady playing in the International Champions Cup against Australian side Melbourne Victory and English side Tottenham Hotspur.

The match will take place on July 30th with tickets on sale June 23rd.

Here's the statement from the club.

"We are excited to be returning to Hong Kong, especially to play against a strong, traditional side like South China," said Giorgio Ricci, Head of Global Partnerships and Corporate Revenues at Juventus.

"The fixture represents another important stage in our pre-season campaign, forming the perfect next step following the International Champions Cup in Australia.

"We look forward to returning to Hong Kong to entertain the many Juventus supporters in the city. I am sure that the match will be an exciting one for the local football fans and a highlight of their summer."
