Owls to face Vitória de Setúbal

14 June 2017

Sheffield Wednesday have added a second fixture to their pre-season schedule in Portugal next month.

The Owls will face Primeira Liga side Vitória de Setúbal on Saturday 22 July at Estádio Municipal de Albufeira, with kick-off at 8.00pm.

Vitoria fans have fond memories of their time with Carlos Carvalhal, who was head coach of the Setubal side on two separate occasions, bringing great success along the way.

Carlos guided Vitoria to the Portuguese top flight in 2004 and returned in 2007, where he led the club to a sixth place finish in the Primeria Liga and subsequent qualification for the UEFA Cup.

In the same campaign, they also lifted the Taça da Liga by defeating Sporting Lisbon in the final.

The Owls head to Portugal on Monday 17 July and return to Sheffield six days later.

As confirmed last week, Wednesday will also play Portimonense on 19 July.
