Ross County manager Stuart Kettlewell says provisional plans are in place for the Staggies to face two fellow Premiership sides in bounce games later this month.
County are building up their preparations for the new campaign is scheduled to start on August 1, with the fixture list to be released at 9am today.
Having now returned to full contact training, the Staggies are looking to continue their build up to the big kick off by lining up opposition for friendly matches to be played behind closed doors.
Kettlewell is also considering taking the Dingwall men to Ireland for a short training camp, with the Staggies unable to return to Holland, where they have travelled for pre-season in each of the last two years.
Kettlewell said: “We are still looking at the potential of two friendlies against Premiership opposition.
“They are provisionally in the diary for us and we are looking to a trip to Ireland for a day or two.
“I am led to believe another Premiership club is doing something similar but this whole thing is a moving vehicle.
“A lot of the clubs have been good at inter-linking about information on best practice and how it impacts your training and your group.
“I would like to take the players away to play against totally different opposition and that is at the forefront of my mind.”
County have been back in training since June 11, which was initially socially distanced, however they returned to full contact sessions last week after receiving the green light from the Scottish FA.
Kettlewell insists match sharpness will need to be built gradually, with the Staggies having not played since March 8 due to the coronavirus shutdown.
Kettlewell added: “It is pretty much as business as usual for us now.
“All the tests have all come back negative and the guys have been able to go into full contact. We are all good to go.
“We just now need to get that build-up to get us right up to match pace. There are a lot of boxes we still need to tick.
“There are a lot of boys who are in really good condition but there is a difference between being fit and being match sharp.
“For us, it is about building that level up as quickly as we can without picking up too many injuries along the way.
“It has been a long lay-off not having that contact and so when it returns it comes with a few knocks and niggles.”
