Nuno Espirito Santo's team will take on champions Young Boys and runners-up Basel in the Uhrencup, a friendly competition that dates back to 1962.

Dutch giants Feyenoord will also take part of the competition, although Wolves aren't due to face them.

Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and Celtic have taken part in the Uhrencup in the past. Stoke City won it last year.

Each team plays two games each in the group format and drawn matches are decided by a penalty shoot-out.

The Wolves games will take place across Bern and Biel. Venues, dates and ticket information are all set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Wolves travelled to Austria for nine days last summer shortly after Nuno took over as boss.

They beat Werder Bremen 1-0 and Viktoria Plzen 2-1 before losing 1-0 to Jablonec.
