We are delighted to announce that the Emirates Cup is returning this pre-season and will be held on Saturday, July 29 and Sunday, July 30.
Joining us at Emirates Stadium for this summer's pre-season tournament will be current Portuguese champions Benfica, Europa League winners in 2014, 2015 and 2016, Sevilla; and RB Leipzig, who have been hugely impressive during their first season in the Bundesliga.
This will be the ninth staging of the Emirates Cup, which has been a regular in the club's pre-season schedule since moving to Emirates Stadium. As with the previous Emirates Cup tournaments, fans will enjoy two matches each on both Saturday and Sunday, with one ticket giving access to both matches on a particular day.
The kick-off times on both days are 2pm and 4.20pm, with tickets priced from only £25 for adults and £12 for concessions for each day. Members will be offered a priority window within which they can buy tickets for the Emirates Cup 2017. Platinum and Gold Members can buy their own seats from Thursday, May 11, and will also have the opportunity to buy another ticket anywhere in the stadium from Thursday, May 18. Silver Members can purchase from Friday, May 19 and Red Members can purchase from Monday, May 22. Full ticket information can be found here. The Emirates Cup 2017 kicks-off at 2pm on Saturday, July 29 with RB Leipzig taking on Sevilla FC, Arsenal then face SL Benfica at 4.20pm. On Sunday, July 30, RB Leipzig play SL Benfica at 2pm, before we bring the tournament to a close against Sevilla FC, which kicks off at 4.20pm. Teams will be awarded three points for a win and one point for a draw. The competition also rewards attacking play, with teams being awarded one 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, with the winning team being presented with the Emirates Cup trophy after the second match on Sunday, July 30.
