Levante’s pre-season begins to take shape. Members of the first team are scheduled to form up from the 5th to 6th of July in the city of Valencia to pass their relevant and required medical checkups. However, the toll will sound loud and clear on the morning of Monday, July 9.On that decided date, which marks the end of their short summer vacation, the chosen return to the field of play at their present training ground, Buñol Sports City, with the purpose of beginning vigorous physical and tactical workouts on the pitch. Then, in the hot summer days of August, the 2018-2019 league season will definitely be ushered in.Buñol Sports City, will once again define the start of the pre-season fine tuning phase, which precedes the League competition.
On the days between the 18th to the 22nd of July, the Granota scarlet-blues (azulgranas) will march onto the training ground to intensively continue towards their peak, not only individually but also as a team. It is not an unlikely scenario for the Levante unit. Last season, the Granota unit spent most of their summertime days in the training ground fields, meeting their stipulated fine-tuning phase schedule. Remember, Levante will face off against A.F.C. Bournemouth on Friday, July 20, at 8:00 pm at Pinatar Arena. Conversely, let’s recall that a fundamental part of the preseason preparatory labor will take place in the Netherlands. Thus, Levante rekindles a hot summer tradition with performance enhancing feats which coincide with those during the scarlet-blue (azulgrana) managing years of Mendilibar 2014-2015 and Lucas Alcaraz 2015-2016.
Between the dates of July 26 and August 5, the Granota scarlet-blue (azulgrana) entourage will make Hotel Heerlickheijd Van Ermelo their personal working headquarters. At this stage of the game calendar, Levante will be caught up in nonstop activity. Inside the Dutch heartland, the squad will be combining their daily workouts with planned fixtures, looking for the better mix. PEC Zeolle, Feyenoord and Heerenveen make up the roster of planned matches already scheduled in the country of tulips. On the 5th of August, the Granota unit will return to Valencia to wrap up their final preparation for the 2017-2018 season. On Saturday, August 11, the group will then head off to Zaragoza to participate in the Carlos Lapetra Memorial - City of Zaragoza Trophy. Simply intense!
