With their English Football League Championship opener just three weeks out, West Bromwich Albion travel to Spain to start their preseason against La Liga side Villareal.

The summer international tournaments have not yet wound to close, and the conclusion of the 2018-2019 league campaigns is barely in the rear-view mirror. But West Bromwich Albion open their second straight season in the English Football League Championship in only three weeks time, per The Independent. With that date looming, and new manager Slavin Bilić in place for less than a month, the Baggies travel to the tiny town of La Nucia where they will take on last season’s Spanish La Liga 14th-place finishers Villareal CF in a friendly match that will live stream from Camilo Cano.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the Villareal CF Vs. West Bromwich Albion opening pre-season friendly of the 2019-2020 season, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Central European Summer Time on Saturday, July 13. The club friendly will take place at the 3,000-seat Estadio Camilo Cano, in the Spanish town of La Nucía.

In the United Kingdom, the live stream gets underway at 6 p.m. British Summer Time, while in the United States, that start time will be 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 10 a.m. Pacific. Fans in Brazil can log in to the live stream at 2 p.m. Brasília Time on Saturday.

West Brom missed out on promotion back to the Premier League after a year in the second tier by nothing more than a penalty shootout that sent Aston Villa into the Championship promotion playoff final, according to The Guardian. Making the pill even harder to swallow, Villa went on to defeat Derby County to earn a place in the top tier.

Bilić returns to coaching in the English League after taking a job in Saudi Arabia with Al-Ittihad of the Saudi Pro League last season. But after only five months, the former West Ham United boss got handed a pink slip by his Saudi bosses, as the Croatian news site Klix reported. After three months of unemployment, he was named West Brom manager, and the former Croatia defender makes his debut on Saturday.
