Newcastle will be one of four Premier League teams to compete for the Premier League Asia Trophy in China this summer.
As well as the Magpies, current Premier League champions Manchester City, West Ham United and Wolves, will battle it out for the pre-season trophy.
Newcastle will play a semi-final against one of their Premier League rivals in Nanjing on July 17, before either the final or a third-place play-off in Shanghai three days later.
Premier League Interim Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “We are delighted to be bringing the Premier League Asia Trophy to China this summer and playing in both Nanjing and Shanghai will be an exciting experience for the league and our clubs.
