Crystal Palace have already confirmed friendlies against Walsall (July 17), Stevenage (July 23), Ipswich Town (July 24), Charlton Athletic (July 31) and Watford (August 7).
The Eagles kick off their 2021-22 Premier League campaign with a trip to Stamford Bridge to play Champions League winners Chelsea on August 14.
