Hearts have confirmed that they will play Goslar SC 08 in the first game of the team's German tour.

The game will take place in the historic Saxon town, whose Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on Tuesday July 7 (kick-off 7pm) at the Osterfeldstadion. Goslar SC 08 play in the regional leagues just below 2. Bundesliga.

A Hearts spokesperson said: "The game against Goslar will be a good start to our German pre-season training camp. At that stage in the season it is about bringing the players back to train and play together. It is also about lifting levels of fitness and as such Goslar will be ideal opponents. Supporters will also enjoy the sites of the historic town."

Hearts have now confirmed two matches in the German tour - the other being the game against 2. Bundesliga club St Pauli on Friday July 10 (kick-off 7pm) - and the club are currently investigating the opportunity for a third game prior to returning to Scotland.
