Spain to host Northern Ireland in Mallorca on Saturday 8 June.

The friendly match will serve as a preparation match for the European Championships, in which the national team will make its start just a week later.

The Mallorca Son Moix stadium in the Balearic capital will host the national team for the sixth time in its history next Saturday, 8 June, in a friendly preparation match against Northern Ireland. The match kicks off at 21:30 and can be followed live on La1 TVE.

Luis de la Fuente and his players will be put through their paces ahead of the European Championships in Germany, which is due to kick off the week after the match in Palma.

Spain, who three days earlier play Andorra in Badajoz, will face the Northern Ireland for the 19th time in their history and will do so more than 16 years after their last meeting, on 21 November 2007 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, when the national team won by one goal to nil.

Just a week after the match in Son Moix, Spain will make their debut in the 17th UEFA European Championships against Croatia on the pitch of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.
