The Tigers have confirmed that their final pre-season fixture ahead of the new Barclays Premier League campaign will be Andy Dawson’s Testimonial game.
Spanish side Real Betis will be the opponents at the KC Stadium on Saturday 10th August with kick-off at 3pm.
The game will offer Hull City fans one final chance to see Dawson in a black and amber shirt. The left back made 317 appearances during a memorable ten years in East Yorkshire, winning four promotions and becoming one of the most popular players in the club’s history.
Dawson’s time at the KC Stadium came to an end when his contract expired last month and he subsequently joined former club Scunthorpe United, who have given the 34-year-old special permission to feature for the Tigers in this fixture despite the Iron having a League Two fixture on the same day. A programme of special events in honour of Dawson will take place ahead of kick-off, with further details to be released as the game draws closer.
The visit of Real Betis, the Tigers’ only home pre-season fixture, will also offer Steve Bruce’s side one final run-through ahead of the Premier League opener against Chelsea.
Ticket details for this fixture will be confirmed in due course.
