Report: Arsenal to face Roma in Charlotte, North Carolina

Arsenal USA pre-season 2019

The full schedule for the International ‘Champions’ Cup (ICC) is due to be released tomorrow, but we already know that that Arsenal will be playing Bayern Munich in LA on July 17th.

Now it looks as if we have a fix on another of our US fixtures this pre-season, as the The Charlotte Post reveal we’ll be facing Roma in their city on July 20th.

The game will be played at the Bank of America Stadium, home to the NFL side Carolina Panthers. It has a capacity of over 75,000.

This news adds another little piece to our pre-season jigsaw puzzle, with the full details made available tomorrow during an event in New York.

That takes place at 10am local time, so 3pm in the UK, and we’ll have all the information here on the site as and when it’s available.

Great news, I wonder if there is an Arsenal news site that might pick up on it.

To be fair – its only news. Not great.

By definition its not even news – as it is not new.

We need the cash and presumably Adidas will want early publicity for the costly new kit deal. Back in Wenger’s day, we mainly went to Austria and the like for gentle pre-season training camps instead. It wasn’t profitable but, on the other hand, the players weren’t tired out afterwards. You make your choice, but these days we (have to) take the money!

It’s interesting our relatively barren years coincided with the ending of the Austrian training camps. It’s impossible to say they were the source of our success but I’m sure they helped more than jetting around the world to unfamiliar climates and disruptive time zones

Our fortunes subsided when the quality of our squad dropped and the teams that are winning the league and champions league have been going on long distance pre-season for well over a decade.

I spent a night in the Paris Hilton, if that counts. Lovely decor.

Yes, I live in Charlotte (owd retiree) they played a match here last year. Liverpool v Dortmund I think, prices started at $40 +, for a friendly with mainly reserves playing – no thanks.

So no Emirates Cup this year by the looks of it. If we play Roma on July 20th and Real Madrid July 23rd it would just leave the 27th and 28th as the Community Shield is August 4th.

Call me pessimistic, but I have a feeling we’re not going to be in the Community Shield this year.
