Arsenal legend Sol Campbell has been in Sydney recently to help mark 100 days to go until the first match of our 2017 #ArsenalinSyndey Tour.

The first team will play back-to-back games against Sydney FC (13 July) and Western Sydney Wanderers (15 July) at ANZ Stadium.

On Tuesday, Sol was joined by Adam Marshall, the Minister for Tourism and Major Events, and Sydney FC marquee player Bobo at Sydney Opera House to mark the occasion. 

The following day, Sol travelled to ANZ Stadium to see where the first-team will be playing in July. While there, he was joined by two NRL players, John Mansour (Penrith Panthers) and Adam Reynolds (South Sydney Rabbitohs) for a quick kickabout.


The Invincible then took part in a Q&A at Rebel Sport in Bondi Junction with players from Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers, with 100 lucky Arsenal fans and members of the Arsenal Australia supporters club in attendance. 

The ex-Arsenal and England defender also visited Taronga Zoo on Thursday before taking a boat tour, seeing a number of incredible sights including the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Mrs Macquarie's Chair and Kirribilli House, the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia.

Speaking about his trip, Sol said: “It’s been an unbelievable couple of days, packed full of seeing what Sydney has to offer and meeting some of our fans. A personal highlight was seeing Sydney from the water, it’s a really beautiful city and I’d love to come back again to see more.  The fans I’ve spoken to here are really excited for the games this July, they will both be competitive fixtures against strong opposition in a great stadium so really great pre-season preparation for the team.”
