This is the first time the tournament will be played in two different locations, with Manchester City, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers competing for the trophy over two action-packed evenings in July at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center and Shanghai Hongkou Football Stadium.
Each daily ticket provides access to both matches on that day.
Ticket prices start from just 88 RMB (£10) for the opening fixtures in Nanjing. Tickets for both the third/fourth place play-off and final in Shanghai start from 288RMB (£32).
Premier League Interim Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “Through the Premier League Asia Trophy we are committed to giving as many fans as possible the opportunity to enjoy the Premier League experience in their own country.
“We are delighted to be bringing this year’s tournament to both Nanjing and Shanghai, and to be able to offer fans in China the chance to watch a host of world-class talent in action at truly affordable prices.
“In Manchester City, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers we have four excellent clubs taking part and I have no doubt fans can enjoy exciting and competitive football across all four matches.”

This is the ninth edition of the Premier League Asia Trophy (previously Barclays Asia Trophy).
City are making our third appearance and won the tournament in 2013.
Manager Pep Guardiola said: “We are delighted to be competing in the Premier League Asia Trophy this summer and are looking forward to visiting both Nanjing and Shanghai.
"We always enjoy playing in front of our fans around the world and can’t wait to join you for what I am sure will be an exciting competition.”
The Premier League Asia Trophy is part of the League’s ongoing commitment to fans in Asia and to supporting the development of football at all levels in China.
As part of this, the Premier Skills programme has reached more than one million young people and trained more than 5,000 coaches and referees in 23 cities across China since 2007.
The Premier League also assists China at an elite level through a formal partnership with the Chinese Super League and Chinese FA to help improve the professional game in the country.
This bond was further strengthened in 2016 through the UK/China Football Forum and now has a renewed focus on youth development.
In relation to this, a full programme of football development initiatives is planned leading up to and during this year’s tournament, including coach education, referee training, a youth tournament and a youth development conference.
Our final game of the season will be screened live at City Square...
