We will play two pre-season matches in Singapore this summer.
As part of the International Champions Cup, we face Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in July. Both matches will be played at the 55,000 capacity National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub.
The first match will see us take on Atletico Madrid on Thursday, July 26, with the match against PSG being played on Saturday, July 28. Both matches kick off at 7.35pm local time (12.35pm UK time).
Arsenal legend Robert Pires, together with representatives from Atletico Madrid and PSG, are in Singapore to celebrate the official launch of the ICC matches. Further details and ticket information can be found here.
These games will be our only matches outside Europe this summer. There will be two further pre-season matches in Europe after returning from Singapore. Full details of these matches will be announced soon.
Due to close-season developments at Emirates Stadium, we will not be staging an Emirates Cup this pre-season.
Chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: “We are looking forward to playing in the ICC matches in Singapore against high-quality opposition in the National Stadium. It will give some of our many fans in the region the chance to see the team in action and I know playing against Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain will produce two exciting matches and give the team some very good preparation ahead of the new season.
