Arsenal to compete in Florida Cup in July 

Florida Cup announcement

Our men’s first team will be travelling to the United States in July to compete in the seventh edition of the Florida Cup as part of our preparations ahead of the 2021/22 season. 

We’ll be taking part in a four-team tournament in Orlando alongside Premier League rivals Everton, Serie A champions Inter Milan, and Colombian side Millonarios. 
 
We’ll face Inter Milan on Sunday, July 25 with Everton taking on Millonarios on the same day. The winners will play in the Florida Cup final on Wednesday, July 28, with the other two sides playing each other on the same day. 
 
All matches will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. This multi-sport venue hosted five matches during the 1994 World Cup and nine men’s and women’s matches during the 1996 Olympic Games. The stadium is home to several US college teams and is also a candidate to host games during the 2026 World Cup. 
 
The two matches come during a week-long training camp in Florida from July 21 to 28. This follows our trip to Scotland for a training camp in Edinburgh, with previously announced fixtures against Hibernian and Rangers on Tuesday, July 13 and Saturday, July 17 respectively. 
 
Mikel Arteta, said: “We’re very pleased to see our pre-season plans ramping up with the announcement of our trip to the United States to take part in the Florida Cup. It will be great for our first-team squad to play two games in front of our US-based fans and the tournament features three good sides that will provide strong opposition. The training and matchday facilities in Orlando will provide a first-class environment for our preparations for next season.”
 
Technical director Edu, added: “The Florida Cup matches, together with the Orlando training camp, will provide Mikel and the squad with an excellent level of preparation as we focus on next season. This adds to our already announced matches and training preparations in Scotland. We look forward to confirming further plans for our pre-season very soon.” 
 
For information on match tickets please visit FloridaCup.com. More information about how our supporters can watch the game live remotely will be released in due course. 
 
To ensure the safety of the players, staff, officials and supporters, all COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines will be adhered to throughout the trip.

Emirates Stadium to host mass vaccine clinic

Gunnersaurus

We are delighted to support the COVID-19 vaccination effort by working with the NHS and Islington Council to host a mass vaccine clinic at Emirates Stadium.

Thousands of over-18s will be encouraged to get their first jabs over the four days, from Friday, June 25 to Monday, June 28.
 
To encourage take up of the vaccine and make it a memorable experience for our supporters, we are also pleased to offer everyone vaccinated over the four days a complimentary behind-the-scenes tour of Emirates Stadium!
 
The site will offer first doses only of COVID-19 vaccines between 8am and 8pm each day. Anyone over the age of 18 who hasn’t yet been vaccinated is invited to either book a slot in advance or to come on the day to get a walk-in appointment, subject to availability.
 
Close to 10,000 vaccinations are expected to be given over the four days, with all attending receiving the Pfizer vaccine.
 
Jonathan O’Sullivan, acting director of public health in Islington, said: “The vaccine is helping to bring us out of the pandemic. But we need more people in Islington and London to get vaccinated. It’s the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones, and having the jab really will help us all get back to enjoying the things we’ve missed doing.
 
“So, I urge everyone who is eligible and has yet to be vaccinated to book their appointment today. We hope the pop-up at this iconic landmark in the borough will provide some extra incentive. We’d love to get even more people down there than were at Spurs’ stadium last weekend!”
 
If you are registered with an Islington GP, are eligible and haven’t had your first dose yet, look out for a text message today (Monday, June 21), inviting you to book your appointment. Use the link in the text message to book at this pop-up at Emirates Stadium.
 
Alternatively, you can book here or by calling the We are Islington helpline on 020 7527 8222. There will also be walk-in appointments during the opening hours.
 
Entry to the stadium will start at Block S, near The Armoury at Hornsey Road. It is fully wheelchair accessible via a street level lift. There will be a managed queueing system for those with appointments and those turning up on the day, to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times. Vaccinations will be carried out in the stadium’s concourse, delivered by trained vaccinators from the NHS.
 
Remember to wear your face mask, unless you’re exempt.
