The Tigers will travel to South Yorkshire next month to take on Barnsley in a pre-season fixture.
Nigel Adkins’ squad head to Oakwell on Saturday 28th July (KO 3pm), a week before the new Sky Bet Championship season gets underway.
Barnsley, who were relegated from the Championship at the end of last season, will be under the guidance of new Head Coach Daniel Stendel following his appointment earlier today as they plan their assault on League One in 2018/19.
Admission prices will be confirmed in due course.
