Norwich will play two games in Saint Vincent. On Sunday 20th July and Wednesday July 23rd they will play at the Piergiorgio Perucca Stadium before heading off to France to face Bastia in the Stad d’Honneur in Sallanches on Friday 25th July.

Hear what Neil Adams and Adel Gafaiti had to say about the training camp:
