Problems with Villarreal's new pitch result in Levante friendly being moved

Villarreal CF twitter

The new pitch at El Madrigal may in the end produce a lovely grass field, but it seems to be taking longer to get settled than was expected.  The Trofeo Ceramica match, originally scheduled to take place on August 6, has now been moved to the Froggies' ground in Valencia.  So, there won't be a Ceramica Trophy this year, and there won't be a home friendly for the fans to welcome the new players either, which is unfortunate.

As things stand now, the first match on the new pitch will be August 28, when we host Espanyol.
