As usual there will be an intensive programme of pre-season matches, with the usual summer tournaments before the new campaign begins at the end of August. Recreativo have invited Athletic Bilbao and Málaga to their Colombino trophy, and Atlético Madrid will be one of the sides taking part in Deportivo's Teresa Herrera cup. See our separate section for details of pre-season fixtures which have been announced to date. (27.06.08)
PS For those of you who have asked, next season's fixtures will not be decided until mid-July when the LFP and the Federation meet following a short break.
