Matchday tickets to attend the Barclays Asia Trophy 2015 in Singapore will be made available for purchase to the general public from Wednesday, May 13 at 10am Singapore time (3am UK time).
The tournament, which takes place in the Lion City for the first time, will give fans the opportunity to see Barclays Premier League stars like Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil in competition with Singapore’s finest players.
Everton will take on Stoke City in the opening match of the tournament while the first test for the Singapore Select XI is to take on FA Cup holders Arsenal.
All three Premier League clubs will be bringing their first-team squads with many star names expected to grace the National Stadium.
"The Barclays Asia Trophy offers the people of Singapore a chance to get to know Arsenal even better"
With tickets sold according to matchdays (July 15 or 18), fans will be able to enjoy two matches for the price of one ticket. More than 90,000 tickets will be available to the public to buy over the two matchdays.
The Barclays Asia Trophy has been held biennially since 2003 and is the only Premier League-affiliated competition to take place outside England. The four-team knock-out competition will take place over July 15 and 18 with a final to determine the winner and a play-off for third place.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking forward to getting reacquainted with the Gunners' knowledgeable Asian fans. "I am pleased to be going to Singapore because Arsenal has many fans there and we always get a very warm welcome in Asia," he said.
"We are always amazed by how much people know about our club and how popular the Premier League and Arsenal is. The digital age has made a miracle of football: when I am in press conferences it sometimes seems that people knew more about our club than I do!
"Certainly the Barclays Asia Trophy offers the people of Singapore a chance to get to know Arsenal even better.”
