Olympique Lyonnais confirmed for Emirates Cup

Emirates Stadium

We’re delighted to announce two pre-season fixtures at Emirates Stadium as part of our preparations for the 2024/25 campaign.

On Sunday, August 11 at 2pm, our men’s first team will welcome French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais in this year’s Emirates Cup.

The Emirates Cup clash comes after the visit of Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Wednesday, August 7 at 6pm.

First staged in 2007, at the end of our inaugural season at Emirates Stadium, this will be the 13th edition of the Emirates Cup. Last August, we celebrated a penalty shootout victory over AS Monaco.

The two fixtures will follow on from our men’s tour to the United States, where we will play Manchester United at SoFi Stadium, Los Angeles and Liverpool at Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia.

Rich Garlick, Managing Director at Arsenal, said: “The Emirates Cup is always a fantastic event, and we’re excited to host Olympique Lyonnais to kick off a new season at Emirates Stadium.” 

“Both fixtures, against top opposition, will provide a strong test for us. We’ll be coming off the back of our pre-season tour to the US, and we look forward to being back at home together with our incredible supporters.”

Boutros Boutros, Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications, Marketing and Brand at Emirates, said: “As proud sponsors of both Olympique Lyonnais and Arsenal, we are delighted to see these two iconic clubs compete for what is set to be another thrilling fixture in the long-standing Emirates Cup at Emirates Stadium. 

"This annual competition not only showcases top-tier football but also strengthens the bond between fans and the fantastic game. We look forward to another exciting edition of the Emirates Cup and an unforgettable match on August 11.”
