Arsenal have confirmed a fourth fixture in the USA this summer.
The Gunners will kick-off their jaunt across the Pond with a fixture against Colorado Rapids, also owned by Stan Kroenke, at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on 15 July.
The club have confirmed that the first team will fly to the United States on 11 July and will be based in Los Angeles before travelling to Denver for the opening match.
Managing director, Vinai Venkatesham had this to say about the upcoming match: “The match against Colorado Rapids in Denver is a great way to kick-off our summer tour to the United States.
“We of course have very close links to the Rapids through our mutual ownership and we are looking forward to playing each other in a match which will provide both teams with a competitive challenge, in front of many American Arsenal supporters.”
Yesterday, the Gunners confirmed their involvement in the International Champions Cup – a pre-season tournament with no real discernible format.
Arsenal v Bayern Munich
Dignity Health Sports Park, Los Angeles.
Arsenal v Roma
Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte.
Arsenal v Real Madrid
FedEx Field, Landover (near Washington DC).
No doubt we’ll announce a couple of pre-season games closer to home at some point.
There won’t be an Emirates Cup held this August as the club needs to finish adding the additional row of seats to Club Level that was half completed last summer.
