Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce its final first-team pre-season fixture ahead of the 2013/14 campaign, which will see the Gunners face Manchester City in Helsinki on Saturday, August 10.
The 'Super Match by Carlsberg' will kick-off at 5pm local time at the 40,000 capacity Olympic Stadium in the Finnish capital, and brings the Gunners’ pre-season schedule to a close.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: "We played Manchester City in the build up to the 2012/13 season in the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing and know that they will provide the team with a very competitive match as we finalise preparations for the 2013/14 domestic campaign.
"We have many passionate supporters in Finland, and it will be a wonderful opportunity to connect with them all in what will be our first-ever match in the country."
