Arsenal will face Everton in Baltimore as part of this summer’s pre-season tour of the United States.
The match, which will take place at the 71,000-capacity M&T Bank Stadium on 16 July, 2022 will precede those that have been arranged in Florida against Orlando City and Chelsea on 20th and 23rd July respectively.
The Gunners were due to take on Everton in a Stateside friendly last summer but pulled out at late notice due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the squad.
On the upcoming fixture, Mikel Arteta said: “We’re excited to be travelling to Baltimore for a fixture against one of my former clubs, Everton. We’ve heard all about Baltimore’s friendly reputation, it’ll be a great occasion in a world-class stadium, and we can’t wait to see our fans there.
“We’re very pleased to see our pre-season schedule taking shape with a series of matches against strong opposition. Our U.S. fans hold a special place in our heart and we’re looking forward to playing in front of them.”
No doubt Eddie Nketiah will be excited about the prospect of playing in his hometown.
