Winners of the title in 1985, they ended last season in tenth place in their first season back in the top flight after securing promotion from Serie B in 2012/13 after an absence of eleven years.

One of two Verona sides in Serie A, their rivals are Chievo who share the same stadium, Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi, and last season saw them finish seven places above their rivals with the two games between the clubs last season both ending in 1-0 away wins.

They will become the first Italian team to play at Turf Moor since Napoli in the Fairs Cup in 1967 and will round off our pre-season programme on Saturday 9th August, kick off 3 p.m..
