The importance of pre-season

16 May 2018

The Owls can confirm that the squad’s pre-season preparations for the 2018/19 campaign will be based on home soil.

Manager Jos Luhukay considered a range of options both in England and across Europe but given his experiences of the past has opted for the former.

He said: “We thought about going away but I have spent a lot years in Austria, Holland and Germany so know the travel always takes a lot of time out of the camps.

"When you go and come back, you lose at least one and often two training days so we have decided we will stay in England.

“The physical side from the team and the players is very important. The Championship is such a strong, intensive league so you must have good preparation.

"Pre-season is always very important. We have to come in a good feeling and in a good shape.”

The Owls’ full itinerary of pre-season fixtures will be confirmed and communicated in due course.
