Unai Emery will conclude Arsenal’s pre-season preparations with a friendly against his former club Sevilla in Stockholm on 4 August.
The Gunners were originally due to face Chelsea in the Swedish capital but have since moved that showdown to Dublin on 1 August so that it doesn’t clash with the Blues’ Community Shield clash with Manchester City.
Emery already has a reunion with Paris Saint Germain in his diary. The Gunners travel to Singapore to face Atletico Madrid on 26 July before taking on the Parisians two days later.
The new head coach says he’s looking forward to taking on Sevilla at the 50,000 capacity Friends Arena.
“It will be great to meet up with my good friends from Sevilla in our last pre-season game before the Premier League starts,” he told Arsenal.com.
“It will be a competitive game against strong opposition and we look forward to giving our many Swedish fans an exciting day.”
The Gunners have a tough start to their Premier League campaign, welcoming Manchester City to the Emirates on the opening day before travelling to Chelsea on matchday 2.
