The dates, locations and opponents for most of Arsenal’s 2018 pre-season world tour have seemingly leaked on Twitter, after the recent International Champions Cup announcement.
As we reported earlier in the week, Arsenal will take part in the International Champions Cup this year, along with a host of top clubs. On Tuesday we should know for sure which teams Arsenal will play, but the details have seemingly leaked early, thanks to Twitter user @AFCFixtureNews.
His information is generally pretty accurate, as he confirmed Arsenal’s participation in the ICC all the way back in February.
According to the latest update, Arsenal will play two matches in Singapore first. They’re two pretty big games as well, with one against Atletico Madrid and the other against PSG.
We already knew Arsene Wenger’s side would travel to Singapore from those reports in February.
The remainder of the friendlies will be closer to home. First Manchester City in Dublin on August 1st, then Valencia in Sweden a few days later.
Sadly, there won’t be an Emirates Cup to look forward to this year. This is thanks to works going on at the Arsenal stadium.
- July 26 – vs Atletico Madrid, National Stadium (Singapore)
- July 28 – vs Paris Saint-Germain, National Stadium (Singapore)
- August 1 – vs Manchester City, Aviva Stadium (Dublin, Ireland)
- August 4 – vs Valencia, Friends Arena (Stockholm, Sweden)
