Following the end of the season we already have the first dates for you with regards the oncoming pre-season: the players are currently on their holidays, but in two weeks' time they will return to Vienna for the start of the pre-season fitness tests. The first training sessions will then begin in earnest, before the squad heads off to Windischgarten in Upper Austria for a summer training camp on the back of the first friendly fixture of the close season.
