Arsenal have finally confirmed their pre-season training camp in Germany, as well as a fixture against 1. FC Nürnberg on July 8th.
On Monday morning, Arsenal confirmed a fifth pre-season fixture, with the team set to kick off their preparations with a match against 1. FC Nürnberg on July 8th.
The match will conclude a four-day training camp at Adidas’ HQ in Herzogenaurach.
Arsenal previously announced all the details of their U.S. tour, with a game in Baltimore against Everton on July 16th, followed by two games in Orlando against Orlando City on July 20th and Chelsea on July 23rd.
The Gunners have also confirmed they will face Sevilla in the Emirates Cup this summer, playing on July 30th at 12:30 BST.
Arsenal Fixture News report that Arsenal will also play a behind-closed-doors friendly at London Colney on July 27th.
But that’s currently the only pre-season fixture awaiting official confirmation, and we may well never get an official announcement for a behind-closed-doors game.

- 8th July – 1. FC Nürnberg vs Arsenal (A)
- 16th July – Everton vs Arsenal (N – Baltimore)
- 20th July – Orlando City vs Arsenal (A)
- 23rd July – Chelsea vs Arsenal (N – Orlando)
- 27th July – Behind-closed-doors friendly
- 30th July – Arsenal vs Sevilla (H)
- 6th August – Premier League opener
While the senior side are on tour, the u18s will reportedly hold a pre-season tour up in Edinburgh from Monday 18th July to Saturday 23rd July.
Jeorge Bird wrote in April that an Arsenal XI (usually a youth team) will also face Boreham Wood in pre-season in July.
