Hibs have announced three pre-season friendlies in July as they look to finalise their schedule ahead of their first competitive fixtures.

The Easter Road outfit will travel to Shielfield Park on Tuesday, July 14 to take on Berwick Rangers (kick-off 7.45pm). They then go across the Forth to take on Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park on Saturday, July 18 (3pm) before facing Ayr United at Somerset Park on Tuesday, July 21 (7.45pm).

All matches will be pay-at-the-gate for both home and away fans.

Hibs’ first competitive match of the season will be in the Petrofac Training Cup. The first round of the tournament will take place on Saturday, July 25. The draw will be made on Monday, June 29 at St Mirren Park Paisley. Hibs exited the tournament at the first round last season after losing 2-1 to Rangers at Ibrox. The eventual winners were Livingston.

Hibs enter the League Cup the following week, with their first-round tie due to be played on Saturday, August 1. The Championship season kicks off the following weekend, with the fixture list due to be published on Wednesday, June 17.
