The Bundesliga season may be over, but the football fun will be coming thick and fast during an action-packed summer 2018. As well as the small matter of the FIFA World Cup in Russia, it won't be long before the Bundesliga's finest start gearing up for the 2018/19 campaign, which kicks off on 24 August.

Because you're all busy people with busy lives, bundesliga.com has taken the trouble of compiling a list of the friendlies that you won't want to miss over the coming months…

Bayern Munich

The Bundesliga champions announced back in April that they'll be heading back to the United States this summer, where they will face Juventus and Manchester City in two high-profile friendlies as part of the International Champions Cup (ICC). Prior to their trip stateside, the Bavarian giants will also take on French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the Austrian city of Klagenfurt, while a friendly with Manchester United and testimonial for former club legend Bastian Schweinsteiger are both scheduled for August at the Allianz Arena.

Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund will also travel to the USA this summer, not once but twice! The Black-and-Yellows took on newly-formed MLS outfit Los Angeles FC in May, before they will jet back across the pond in July for ICC encounters with Man City, Liverpool – in a reunion with former boss Jürgen Klopp – and Benfica. While the squad's World Cup players missed the first trip, they are all likely to spend some time in the country that is home to star midfielder and USA international Christian Pulisic. BVB also took on German third-tier side Zwickau in a rearranged friendly from last year.
