Manchester City have confirmed that they will play Supersport United and AmaZulu on the South Africa leg of their pre-season tour.

City will face Supersport at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on July 14 at 2pm UK time in what will be new manager Manuel Pellegrini’s first game in charge.

They then take on AmaZulu in Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium four days later at 7pm UK time as part of the Nelson Mandela Football Invitational.

City chief executive Ferran Soriano said: ‘We are very excited about visiting South Africa this summer to begin our preparations for the new season.

‘As well as competing in two games we have chosen Durban as our base for our training camp.

‘Supersport and AmaZulu will provide us with an excellent test and it is an exciting time for the club as Manuel Pellegrini takes charge of the team for the first time.

‘South Africa showcased itself as a footballing nation in 2010 with a wonderful World Cup.

‘They have first-rate facilities and a passionate footballing fanbase, and this trip will be a fantastic opportunity for us to train and compete in front of our African supporters.’

The fixtures also represent the first possible opportunity for new signings such as Jesus Navas to play in City colours.
