Olympique Lyonnais, Villarreal and VfL Wolfsburg will join Arsenal for the Emirates Cup 2015 on Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26.
Tickets are now on general sale and can be bought here. As in previous years, supporters will enjoy two matches on both Saturday and Sunday, with one ticket giving access to both matches on a particular day.
Nicklas Bendtner is set to return to Emirates Stadium with Bundesliga runners-up and German Cup winners Wolfsburg, who will take on Santi Cazorla’s former club Villarreal in the opening match of the tournament. Arsenal will then host Lyon at 4.20pm.
On July 26 Lyon will face Villarreal at 2pm, before the Gunners bring the tournament to a close against Wolfsburg.
Teams will be awarded three points for a win and one point for a draw. The competition also rewards attacking play, with teams earning a point for each goal they score.
In addition, shots on target will be taken into account and will be used to decide the tournament winners if teams are level on points and goal difference. The winning club will be presented with the Emirates Cup trophy after the final match on Sunday.
