Hansa Rostock announced on Friday that they would be Bayern's opponents in their first game under Guardiola, but it's now been revealed that the match against the 3. Bundesliga side is scheduled one day after the Bavarians' season opener against Grossaspach.

Bayern will then take on rivals Borussia Dortmund for the Telekom cup on July 20, with another Telekom cup match scheduled for the following day.

They end their July program with the Uli Hoeness cup match versus Barca on the 24th.
