Arsenal last played in Carson in 2016 when they beat Chivas of Guadalajara, the same year Stan Kroenke moved his Rams to LA. The venue was known as the StubHub centre then.

It will be Bayern Munich’s first trip to Southern California.

As was revealed back in February, Arsenal will tour the USA for pre-season this summer, with details of the locations and opponents leaking on social media although it appears not all those details are correct.

Arsenal also travelled to across the Atlantic to face the New York Red Bulls back in 2014. They ended up suffering a 1-0 defeat thanks to a Bradley Wright-Phillips goal, so this is another chance to put things right on American soil.

Arsenal will take part in what will be the seventh iteration of the International Champions Cup and, at the time of writing, the following teams have also confirmed their participation:

Tottenham, Atletico Madrid, Inter, Juventus, Milan, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Benfica, Roma, and Chivas of Guadalajara.

More fixture details are expected to be released on 27 March.
