The last managerial debut of the new Barclays Premier League season will take place at the Etihad Stadium as new Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini leads his side against Alan Pardew and visiting Newcastle United.
The match can be seen on TSN at 2:30pm et/11:30am pt.
Pellegrini will not be the only new man on the pitch for Manchester City, who completed over $100 million in transfer business during the offseason to bring in the likes of Stevan Jovetic, Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo, adding them to an already impressive offensive attack.
Sergio Aguero is still the main striker on the team and though he has been battling pre-season injuries, he is expected to be healthy for the season opener.
With main title contending rivals Manchester United and Chelsea both opening the season with impressive and dominant victories, it's up to City to show that they belong in the upper class of the Premier League again this season.
Newcastle struggled down the stretch last season, especially on the road where they ended the year with just two wins away from St. James' Park, and eventually found themselves in a relegation battle that they narrowly escaped into a 16th-place finish.
Loic Remy has joined the ranks, on loan from Queen's Park Rangers, to finally fill the void left behind by last season's transfer of Demba Ba to Chelsea.
He was one of the few bright spots on a team that occupied the bottom of the table for most of the season and now compete a League down in the Championship.
Hatem Ben Arfa will be counted on from an attacking midfield position to run at City's defenders and create problems in the offensive half of the field.
Manchester City has won the last three meetings between the clubs, including a 4-0 victory at home in March of last season.
City's 14 home wins last season put them second best in the BPL, behind only the 16 captured by Manchester United.
