After having taken on VVV-Venlo and Sporting Club before, PSV will now face formidable opponents, as they meet Premier League giants Newcastle United and Everton. Huub Stevens will use the two games as measuring stick. PSV had a pre-season training camp in England in the summer of 2006, when they met Stoke City and, again, Newcastle United in pre-season friendlies. During the 2006/07 season, PSV were drawn with Liverpool twice in the Champions League. They were paired with The Reds in the group stages and also in the quarter-finals. PSV Media will join the squad for the trip to England and both and PSV TV Online will cover all events.
