Arsenal Football Club and the New South Wales Government have today announced the match dates for next summer’s pre-season tour, when the Gunners will visit Australia for the first time in nearly 40 years.

Tickets will go on sale for the two matches on Tuesday 19th July 2016, with full details on how supporters can purchase tickets released through in due course.

As a recap of this summer’s activity, the Gunners will travel to the United States in July to play pre-season friendlies against the MLS All-Stars in San Jose and Chivas de Guadalajara at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles.

Other pre-season matches in Europe are also under consideration.
