By Alex Stedman • 01 August 2018

The dates and times of Brighton & Hove Albion’s 2018/19 Premier League International Cup group stage fixtures have been confirmed. 

The Seagulls were placed in Group D alongside Everton, Benfica and Bayern Munich for their first ever appearance in the competition and begin the tournament with a game against Everton on Thursday 20th September.

Simon Rusk’s side will then host Benfica on Wednesday 23rd January, before Bayern Munich visit the south coast eight days later on Thursday 31st January – all three group stage matches will kick-off at 7pm. 

Albion will play all three of their group stage games in England, as they look to progress to the knockout stages of the 24-team competition and will join 11 English clubs in the tournament and 12 invited clubs from across Europe.

The teams are split into six groups of four and the group winners will advance to the knockout stages alongside the two best runners-up.

Manchester City remain the only English side to win the trophy, after they beat Porto 1-0 back in 2015.

Venues for all three matches will be confirmed in due course.
