Arsenal have announced two pre-season friendlies in Scandinavia this summer to help prepare for the 2016-17 campaign.
With no Emirates Cup this year because of the European Championships, Arsene Wenger’s men will be on their travels.
After coming back from the USA where the Gunners will face the 2016 MLS AT&T All-Stars in San Jose on July 28, and then Chivas de Guadalajara at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles on Sunday on July 31, they’ll travel to Norway and Sweden for two more warm up fixtures.
On Friday August 5th Arsenal will take on Viking FK at the Viking Stadion in Stavanger. Then there’ll be an all Premier League clash with Man City on Sunday August 7th at Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg.
That will see Arsene Wenger vs Pep Guardiola, and give an early taste of what the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich head coach will bring to the Premier League.
So, good news for Arsenal fans in that neck of the woods. Reminds us of a song.
