We will play Bayern Munich in a pre-season friendly in Shanghai, China on Wednesday, July 19, 2017.
The match at the Shanghai Stadium will be part of the International Champions Cup, a multi-club pre-season group of matches in China. The match will be followed by a friendly against Chelsea on Saturday, July 22 in the Bird’s Nest Stadium, Beijing.
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: “It will be very special for our Chinese fans to see a game of this stature. We have a fantastic following in China and the two games we are playing there this summer will be an exciting part of our build up for the new season.”
