Many people are suffering from withdrawal symptoms after the 2010 FIFA World Cup finished, but the new season is soon upon us, and there are some fantastic pre-season friendlies to whet the appetite before then.

Ajax v Chelsea tickets at the Amsterdam Arena on July 23rd 2010 are available from £57 through World Ticket Shop. The Netherlands is just a short ferry or flight away, and of course there are plenty of other attractions to a trip to the Dutch capital city too. The match itself features two giants of European football, and given in Chelsea and Ajax’s league campaigns last season they scored 103 and 106 goals respectively, it is sure to be an exciting game between two attacking sides.

FC Kaiserslauten v Liverpool tickets at the Fritz Walter Stadion on July 24th 2010 are on sale from £41 at Sports Events 365, and will offer a chance to see what new boss Roy Hodgson plans for the Merseyside team – and by then some interesting transfers could well have been made.

Speaking of interesting transfers, the overflowing wallet of Sheikh Mansour at Manchester City has already seen the club splash out on some top notch talent in Jérôme Boateng, Yaya Touré and David Silva – and by the time of their next match in the United States they may even have added more talent! Manchester City v Inter Milan tickets at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore are available from £30 from Ticketmaster USA, and it will be interesting to see how the English club performs against the European Champions – now of course managed by Rafael Benitez.

Meanwhile, two of the biggest names in club football face off against each other in what could be a pre-season classic: Bayern Munchen v Real Madrid tickets are on sale now from £29 from Seatwave, and new Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has already started to make his mark on his side – despite not having played a match. He has signed Benfica and Argentina winter Angel Di Maria, who will cause havoc down the left. For the Munich side, Arjen Robben will look to make an impression on his former side.
