Southampton's Under-21s and Under-18s have confirmed their pre-season schedules ahead of the 2024/25 season.

The youngsters will face a mix of tests against local non-league clubs, as well as encountering EFL opponents and fellow Under-21s sides.

A Saints XI will kick-off their pre-season with a trip to AFC Totton, before the Under-21s group face strong squads from Swindon Town and Gillingham behind closed doors.

Their lead up to the Premier League 2 campaign will also include games against National League South side Chippenham Town and AFC Bournemouth's Under-21s.

Meanwhile, another Saints XI will make the short trip to Sholing on Friday 19th July as they unveil the new Pangea Stand at the Mortgage Decisions Community Stadium.

The unveiling will be part of an exciting evening for the Southern League Premier South side, with Levi Colwill and Matt Le Tissier set to cut the ribbon on the new stand, before an opening test for Saints' youngsters.

The Under-18s will also face Hastings United, AFC Bournemouth U18s and AFC Wimbledon U18s.
