Pools’ First Round EFL Cup tie against Preston North End has been confirmed for Tuesday 9th August at Deepdale (7.45pm kick-off).
The teams were paired together in last week’s draw for the newly-named competition, which was broadcast live online via Facebook and Sky Sports’ website.
After opening the season against Colchester United at Victoria Park on Saturday 6th August, Craig Hignett’s men will make the trip to Lanchashire three days late to begin their EFL Cup campaign.
North End have reduced ticket prices for the game in a bid to ensure as many fans from both teams can enjoy the game at Deepdale.
Adults (17 or above) - £10
Juniors (16 or under) - £1
Tickets will be available in advance from Victoria Park, with more information available in due course.
